Shining Through

BBB.5

(out of 5)


This war drama provides a thrilling look back to the more innocent spy movies of the forties, and it’s possible that this pie-eyed attitude about it that convinced film critics to tear it to shreds.  excels as a half Irish, half Jewish secretary who willingly puts herself in danger when she discovers that her boss  () is planning to implement a spy operation in Nazi Germany. Thinking that the opportunity to live out the kind of adventure she sees in the movies is something she’d regret missing forever, she signs up for a mission and gets in way over her head in trying to retrieve top secret information for her employer. Exciting and tense, with a strong period feel and an excellent supporting cast that includes Liam Neeson and his soon-to-be sister-in-law .
