Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Sep 11th at 4:40 pm for The Debt at the AMC Loews Georgetown 14 . Look for Brian F. wearing a green “Life is Good” t-shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
The espionage thriller begins in 1997, as shocking news reaches retired Mossad secret agents Rachel (Helen Mirren) and Stefan (Tom Wilkinson) about their former colleague David (Ciaran Hinds). All three have been venerated for decades by their country because of the mission that they undertook back in 1966, when the trio (Jessica Chastain, Marton Csokas, and Sam Worthington) tracked down Nazi war criminal Vogel (Jesper Christensen) in East Berlin. At great risk, and at considerable personal cost, the teams mission was accomplished – or was it? The suspense builds in and across two different time periods, with startling action and surprising revelations.
