Spy - Teaser Trailer


Susan Cooper works as an analyst for the CIA; rarely out where the action is and working entirely from the office, advising some of the organisation's top agents during their most deadly assignments. However, following a serious lapse in judgement at the hands of her partner during a bomb disposal mission, the agency are forced to enlist another member of the team to uncover the location of the nuclear weapon. Deciding now is the time to drop her boring persona and become the super keen spy she always wanted to be, Susan volunteers to go undercover - to much derision from her colleagues who barely know her name let alone her position in the CIA.

The Devil's Double Review


Excellent
Anchored by a fierce double performance from Dominic Cooper, this true story is so intensely violent that it's not easy to watch. But it's an extremely well-made film, and the tight point of view makes it both riveting and urgent.

Latif isn't allowed to say no and, after extensive training and plastic surgery, plus the approval of Saddam (Quast), he becomes Uday's doppelganger. But he never hides his belief that Uday is a psychopath, even to his mentor Munem (Rawl). And he takes an even bigger risk when he falls for one of Uday's girls, Sarrab (Sagnier).

Devil's Double Trailer


Based on a true story, The Devil's Double is about Latif Yahia and Uday Hussein (the latter of whom is the eldest son of future dictator Saddam Hussein) who were former school mates in Baghdad with a striking resemblance to each other. Years later, in 1987, Latif is summoned by Uday and is propositioned with what is described to him as a great honour: because of the two's similarity, Latif has been chosen to be Uday's body double, a deal he has no choice but to accept or have his family condemned to death.
