Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Grevelle is arrested for espionage and thrown in prison in a bare cell with only a cot and a piss bucket. We see him freezing, relentlessly interrogated, beaten by guards. After a considerable amount of time has passed, we see him pale and emaciated. This is a very tough section of the movie to watch.
