Good modern wartime political thriller!

This is not 'bang bang' war action film but tense, slow, mature, complex examination of ethical decision-making complexity of the military and political structures. Interesting to watch and thought provoking. Also very good performances by Helen and Alan. My problem was that most of the characters were a bit too stereotypical so they came across flat. I would change a thing or two for sure. However, worth watching. 4-/5
