“A powerful, provocative and essential piece of modern British cinema”
THE LIST

Opening Night film at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Tom Harper’s sharp-tongued political thriller War Book is sure to set hearts racing. Over the course of three days, a collection of British civil servants must practice crisis protocol after being given a pretend scenario of a nuclear attack in Mumbai – an actual political exercise that has been practiced within British Parliament since the 1960s. The political quickly becomes personal in this tense single-room setting where moral and humanitarian dilemmas are confronted with surprising results. With undeniable real-world relevance and an impressive ensemble cast lead by Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda) and Ben Chaplin (Thin Red Line), War Book leaves audiences with the ultimate question: what would you do?
