Rebecca Hall and Eric Bana are two lawyers and ex-lovers involved in a terrorist trial, where their every move is observed by the powers that be. It takes place in England, because in the U.S., obviously, we’ve never had to worry about the government monitoring citizens.

Metallica: Through the Never, a surreal 3-D movie taking place in the middle of the band’s show.
