Description

Director Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s pulse-pounding political thriller is beyond fast-paced. Political fixer Manuel tries to quash a political scandal that threatens to bring down the Spanish government, but each fire he thinks he has put out just throws sparks in other directions. Every secret revealed leads to more questions being asked that no one wants to answer. Based on true events, The Realm might be mistaken for one of the Mission Impossible films, although the daring-do here is Manuel's ability to stay one step ahead of the press, other party officials, and his own friends. Make that former friends, because the cat-and-mouse games are really rat-and-rat as we discover that we’ve been rooting for people who believe that party matters more than justice or truth. With a truly shattering ending, the film will linger in the minds of viewers who might mistake it for the nightly news.—Dave Nuttycombe
