Editorial Reviews

When single mother Collette McVeigh (Riseborough) is arrested for her part in an aborted IRA plot in London, an MI5 officer (Owen) offers her a choice: lose everything and go to prison or return to Belfast to spy on her own family. With her son's life in her hands, Collette chooses to place her trust in the MI5 and return home. When her brothers' secret operation is ambushed, suspicions of an informant are raised and Collette finds both herself and her family in grave danger.

Customer Reviews

The acting was very good.
Christah
Some parts are tense and exciting but really the movie tended to drag a lot and I found it hard to stay focused on.
Tony Heck
The film is slow-paced, but is still tense.

Loved this movie! It didn't cover any 'new' ground with regards to the IRA/UK conflict referred to as "the troubles" if you know your history. Others have said this is a bit like picking up a movie/story half way thru and you struggle to catch up to what's going on before the film is done. Their is truth to that but the 'simple story' here is MI5 is always trying to get informants inside the IRA to turn on their comrades so they can foil attacks and catch the terrorists. Clive Owen does a good job here as the MI5 Agent running his informant. You get zero back story on him but it matters little in the overall course of events. Gillian Anderson from the X-Files is his Boss looking gorgeous but what IS she doing in a British Spy film? The plot moves slowly at times & the dialogue is hard to understand--but the film has subtitles--thank you! This would just be an 'ordinary,forgettable' little movie about the problems in Ireland in the 90's and then....the surprise ending comes and WOW it just made this movie rock for me. Highly recommended if your a fan of Clive or MI5 the great BBC TV show.

I was reluctant to watch one more movie on IRA. Trust me, almost movies based on Irish revolt were good. But, I think I've had enough.

Personally, I prefer "Five Minutes of Heaven".

This movie, like Five Minutes of Heaven, uses the North Ireland civil war only as a background to convey a much more darker story.

The film is shot with simple means without any frills and above all without ANY product placements.

Which is in itself very noble of the director.

This movie was hard for me to understand what they were saying. I did have problems streaming so maybe that could have been part of the problem. I did use CC to get words. This also has one of the biggest surprise endings I've seen in a long time. I read others statements about the surprise so was expecting something, but it still got me.

My background knowledge on the IRA (Irish Republican Army) is mediocre, so it was difficult following the politics in the movie. If you're a fan of Irish political dramas, I recommend you watch Bloody Sunday instead.

A little heavy but excellent story. Good view into how conflicts like the IRA v. England have real lasting and tragic effects on real people's lives. Good plot with some surprises. Little bit hard to understand the dialogue with the accents.

SHADOW DANCER (definition: a dance presented by casting shadows of dancers on a screen) is another film about the conflicts of the IRA during the 1990s. Despite the fact that the theme is a recurring one in films, the core meaning of the conflict remains a bewildering mystery to those not living in Ireland or in England, and that is what makes this film fall short of being excellent - there is much significant information that is not shared with the audience as though we all understand fully both sides of the conflict well enough to muddle through the outlines of the plot that are presented. Tom Brady wrote screenplay based on his own novel and even director James Marsh can't seem to iron it out into a comprehensible story.

The film opens in 1973 in Belfast when young Collette (Maria Laird) is asked by her father to run an errand but she is far more interested in making bead necklaces so she sends her younger brother Sean (Ben Smyth) who is killed outside their home. Jump to 1993 and Collette (Andrea Riseborough), mother of a young son, has become a mole (`tout') for the IRA, and is arrested in the London tube after leaving a bomb in the facility. MI5 (definition: Military Intelligence section 5 is a British intelligence agency working to protect the UK's national security against threats such as terrorism and espionage) Agent Mac (Clive Owen) offers a deal to Collette to become an informer. She accepts the agreement to protect her son and in return Mac offers a new identity to her after a period working for the MI5. Soon Mac learns that his superior Kate Fletcher (Gillian Anderson) is using Collette to protect her mole inside the Irish organization. Mac tries to find the identity of the informer and protect Collette.
