  • An implicit condemnation of the repressive tactics of the British government in Northern Ireland, HIDDEN AGENDA stars Brian Cox (THE BOXER), Brad Dourif (MISSISSIPPI BURNING), and Frances McDormand (FARGO). When an American attorney working for a humanitarian group who is investigating the torture of IRA prisoners is killed in Belfast, Inspector Kerrigan (Cox) is sent to investigate the crime. He's joined by Sullivan's fiance, Ingrid Jessner (McDormand), a lawyer working for the International League of Civil Liberties. They learn that he had been given a tape by a former British army officer named Harris (Maurice Roeves) that contained highly incriminating material concerning the activities of the British government. With some difficulty they track down the elusive officer, leading them to the IRA. This well-made, low-key political thriller was highly controversial upon its release because it cited real names and events in presenting its case for the existence of a conspiracy at the highest levels of the British government.

    "...Chilling....This quietly explosive film comes to resonate more loudly than melodrama..."
    New York Times

    "...The script percolates with startling revelations about the venality of Britain's secret service..."
    Film Comment

    "...A taut, straightforward example of Loach's craftsmanship....The movie has a documentary-like atmosphere but the confrontations are brilliantly staged and the dialogue is heightened for dramatic effect..."
