Shadow Dancer (film)

The story of Shadow Dancer has been adapted by Tom Bradby from his own novel which was published in 2001. The director is James Marsh (Man On Wire / Project Nim) and this is his first fiction film. He has previously been known for great documentaries. The film is set in 1990s Belfast before the peace-process and stars Clive Owen, Andrea Riseborough, Gillian Anderson and Domhnall Gleeson.

A young IRA member is forced to turn informant for MI5 after a failed bomb event and this unleashes a disastrous chain of events. The low-key thriller is a slow-burn film which explores the role of informers during the Troubles. It does not take political sides but tries to understand the almost impossible decisions these people were faced with and the effects of these decisions on their families.
