Closed Circuit trailer offers interesting thread

ClosedCircuit.jpgWhile the main threads of the plot of Closed Circuit might seem similar there is one very interesting aspect that draws your attention through the title and the trailer, the use of the closed circuit cameras which feature throughout London so prominently.

Of course there's also the fact that Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall star with Jim Broadbent, Ciarán Hinds, Riz Ahmed and Kenneth Cranham, and that the script was written by Steven Knight who delivered Dirty Pretty Things, Amazing Grace, Eastern Promises and the upcoming Hummingbird.

I'm not sure how much CCTV will play in Closed Circuit but it does seem to hold an important part through the trailer and of course in the title itself. The plot outline is brief and doesn't mention much about it:

Martin and Claudia are lawyers -- and ex-lovers -- who find themselves put at risk after they join the defense team for an international terrorist's trial.

Now for the trailer through TrailerAddict. The film is directed by John Crowley who previously directed Intermission, Boy A, and Is Anybody There?

While the story isn't leaping out and grabbing me there are some strong suggestions of something good to come, especially since Steven Knight is behind the script.
