anothr Bill Nighy winner
I watched this smart, talky thriller today and liked it very much. Bill Nighy can be depended on to give a fine performance. He wends his tall, lanky, somewhat hesitant and modest persona through the dark and chilling scenes of this story of British MI5 security and secrets. No blood, no outer space, no violence to speak of, except betrayal. The Australian actress Judy Davis also appears and provides the requisite blue language quotient. This was originally a PBS Masterpiece Theater presentation a couple of years ago. I recommend it.
Correction: Yesterday's Nighy movie is Wild Target (not Moving Target). Trust you didn't spend precious minutes looking for it!
