Cinematique Presents "A Most Wanted Man"
Based on a John le Carre novel, this extraordinary thriller starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright, Rachel McAdams and Willem Dafoe, will throw you head first into the high stakes world of international crime and intrigue. When a half-Chechen, half-Russian brutally tortured immigrant turns up in Hamburg's Islamic community, laying claim to his father's illicit fortune, both German and U.S. security agencies take a close interest. As the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man's true identity - maltreated victim or destruction-bent terrorist? Smart, subtle and absorbing A Most Wanted Man proves once again that John le Carre books make for sharp, thoughtful thrillers. (R, 2hr 2min)
