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.
