Bill Nighy, for me, is unerasably linked with 'Love Actually', where I took notice of him the very first time; as a comedian. But he is such a colossal versatile character. As Worricker he is delivering a quiet, impressive & calm performance; consistently. 'Page Eight' is a political thriller which succeeds with a very smart script & compelling acting performances of the entire cast. Worth seeing. 3,5 stars.
Fantastic little spy film sans shoot 'em ups or high tech gadgetry. Excellent performances from the cast, and some genius dialogue in places. Characters like Nighy's are quirky yet believable. The best film of this trilogy by far, imo. The film version of a wry smirk in the face of serious political narcissism. Won't be your favourite film ever, but has a good chance of giving you a good evening if you watch it.
