From the producers of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy comes a riveting and suspenseful mystery starring Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall. A high-profile terrorism case unexpectedly brings two exceptional lawyers (Bana and Hall) with a romantic past together on the defense team. They soon realize they’ve stepped into a dangerous web of cover-ups and lies, and their knowledge of the government’s top-secret classified evidence has put their reputations and lives at stake. Co-starring Ciarán Hinds, Julia Stiles and Jim Broadbent, it’s a non-stop, heart-racing guessing game that critics call “an entertaining conspiracy thriller.” (Jocelyn Noveck, Associated Press)

Critics Consensus: Slick and well acted, Closed Circuit unfortunately never quite works up a full head of steam, with a plot that's alternately predictable and full of holes.

Disappointing English thriller has some violence, drugs.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Closed Circuit is an English crime thriller that focuses for a while on talking and discovering information and then has a big chase-and-escape sequence at the climax. There's some fighting and a little blood when a woman is attacked and fights back. There's also a lethal explosion that kills 120 people and a car crash. "F--k" is used a few times, but, overall, language is sparse. A flashback shows kissing, and there's some flirting. One minor character is said to be a heroin dealer; he's shown suffering from using the drug. Some characters smoke cigarettes. The movie's tone/structure -- which asks audiences to think heavily during the first two-thirds and then turn off their brains during the last act -- makes it seem unlikely to appeal to a broad audience.
