Directed by acclaimed filmmaker James Marsh (Man on Wire, Project Nim), Magnolia Picturesí SHADOW DANCER stars Andrea Riseborough, Clive Owen, and Gillian Anderson as MI5 commanding officer, Kate Fletcher.
A conspiracy thriller set around an act of betrayal within a tight knit family, the story centers around single mother Collette McVeigh (Riseborough) -- a Republican living in Belfast with her mother and hardliner IRA brothers.
When she is arrested for her part in an aborted IRA bomb plot in London, an MI5 officer (Owen) offers her a choice: lose everything and go to prison or return to Belfast to spy on her own family.
