TIFF 2011: Films We Are Most Looking Forward To: Trailer For The Closing Night Film ‘Page Eight’
The Toronto International Film Festival recently announced Page Eight as its closing night film. Directed and written by David Hare (scriptwriter for The Reader and The Hours) the film is a contemporary spy drama set in London and Cambridge. If Hare can direct as well as he can write, this film should be pretty amazing.
Synopsis (via IMDb): Johnny Worricker (Bill Nighy) is a long-serving M15 officer. His boss and best friend Benedict Baron (Michael Gambon) dies suddenly, leaving behind him an inexplicable file, threatening the stability of the organization. Meanwhile, a seemingly chance encounter with Johnny’s striking next-door neighbour and political activist Nancy Pierpan (Rachel Weisz) seems too good to be true. Johnny is forced to walk out of his job, and then out of his identity to find out the truth.
