Shadow Dancer

Stars: Clive Owen, Andrea Riseborough, Gillian Anderson, Aidan Gillen, Domhnall Gleeson, Brid Brennan, David Wilmot, Stuart Graham, Martin McCann | Written by Tom Bradby | Directed by James Marsh

Director James Marsh, best known for his critically acclaimed documentaries Man on Wire and Project Nim, dabbles once more with fiction with Shadow Dancer, a tense and engaging thriller set against the backdrop of the Troubles in early nineties Belfast.

Andrea Riseborough plays Collette, a mother, daughter, sister and member of the Ira. After she is captured by MI5 during an unsuccessful London bombing attempt, Clive Owen’s bullish agent ‘Mac’ convinces her to act as an informant rather than go to prison and face separation from her son. The danger to Collette gradually increases as her precarious position becomes ever more untenable and Mac grows more and more conflicted over his actions as the narrative progresses.
