Best on the Box
This British political thriller isn’t subtle, but it works. Amid the wreckage and bodies after a chemical blast in an industrial plant, British Deputy Prime Minister Tom Dawkins ( Gabriel Byrne) vows to take on the US company responsible over its questionable safety procedures. It all ramps up when the prime minister is killed in a plane crash on the way back from negotiating a compensation package with the Americans. Dawkins is temporarily in charge, but his quest for truth – and his leadership – is challenged by political rivals more intent on the top job than helping the victims.
