A Palestinian bomber has killed an Israeli diplomat and his family and the Israeli plot to neutralise him becomes convoluted as they select an American Actress (Charlie) to impersonate the Bomber's brother's girlfriend after the Israeli's capture and kill the brother. Charlie is placed into a world where she begins being an actress, then becomes a spy, then is trained by the Palestinians as a guerrilla and finally is sent to deliver a bomb. She is chronically confused by how far she is really supposed to go in her impersonations and how much of herself she must give up. From the book by John Le Carre Written by

The film's source novel is one of author John Grisham's favorite novels. Grisham has said: "I love to read John le Carré, the British guy who's really probably my favorite writer. The Little Drummer Girl is a book I read about every four or five years. It's just so clever and brilliantly plotted. It's the kinda' book-and his writing is off the charts, the way he expresses himself and the way he describes people and dialogue - and every time I read that book, it inspires me to be better."

I trust you will not immediately foam at the mouth if I add that we are also Israeli citizens.

Here's a gritty look at the world of counter-terrorism
This movie's not for the timid but it is for those who like realism, who enjoy the twists and turns of intrigue and who are riveted by intricacies in plot development. It's a movie which reveals what it's all about to the heroine and viewers only as the plot develops and that's refreshingly like life.
