‘Defence of the Realm’ (1985) PG Rating
Gabriel Byrne stars as Nick Mullen, a newspaper reporter for the London Daily Dispatch who is eager for the big story that will make him a star and make his newspaper famous. He uncovers what appears to be a simple sleaze story about an MP and despite warnings from his mentor Vernon Bayliss (Denholm Elliott), exposes the story and becomes a celebrity himself. Set during the Reagan/Thatcher Cold War period, Nick soon discovers that there is much more to the story than he first imagined and joins forces with Bayliss’ beautiful secretary Nina (Greta Scacchi) to uncover the truth. Fast-paced, complex, and gripping, this is a conspiracy film on a par with the best.
