SHOCK AND AWE - poster

This tense thriller sees the welcome return of veteran director Rob Reiner (The Princess Bride, Spinal Tap, When Harry Met Sally) with a searing account of the machinations between the American government, media and public in the run-up to the 2003 US Iraq invasion. The febrile period is recreated with a stellar cast, including Woody Harrelson, Tommy Lee Jones, James Marsden, Milla Jovovich and Jessica Biel working with a fast-paced screenplay by Joey Hartstone. Reiner pulls no punches with this movie, the mendacity and manoeuvrings of the trigger-happy administration are laid painfully bare from the perspective of key journalists and their families.
