One morning, a busy London market is decimated by an explosion. In the manhunt that follows, only one member of the suspected terrorist cell survives: Farroukh Erdogan (Denis Moschitto), who is arrested and jailed. Preparations begin for what promises to be the trial of the century.

But there's a hitch: the government will use classified evidence to prosecute Erdogan, evidence so secret that neither he nor his lawyers can be allowed to see it. Hence the need for the Attorney General (Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent) to appoint a Special Advocate, an additional government-approved defense lawyer (Claudia Simmons-Howe, played by Golden Globe Award nominee Rebecca Hall), one who has clearance to see classified evidence and who can argue for its full disclosure when the trial moves to "closed" session. The rules for the Special Advocate are clear: once the secret evidence is shared with her, Claudia will not be allowed to communicate even with the defendant or with other members of the defense team.

But just as the case is on the eve of going to trial, Erdogan's lawyer dies suddenly, and a new defense attorney, Martin Rose (Eric Bana), quickly steps in. Martin is tenacious, driven, brilliant - and an ex-lover of Claudia's. The two lawyers make an uncomfortable pact to keep their former affair hidden. But as Martin begins to piece the case together, the outlines of a sinister conspiracy emerge, one that will draw him and Claudia dangerously close again.

Closed Circuit was released August 28th, 2013 and stars Kate Lock, Katherine Press, Patrick Warner, Ricky Nixon, Daniel Tuite, Zora Bishop, Vicky Jam, Zahra Ahmadi. The film is directed by John Crowley.

    Eric Bana: The most underrated actor of this day and age.
    Seriously, when I think of the great actors of this generation, I think of people like Christian Bale, Edward Norton, Gary Oldman, Ryan Gosling, Viggo Mortensen and also the late Heath Ledger (im probably forgetting someone really important.) However, I tend to forget about people such as Eric Bana and Orlando Bloom which really saddens me. Im glad to see they're still active in some heavy productions and im constantly looking forward to their next projects.
