Al­lied

C4 9.00pm - 11.25pm

With more than a nod to direc­tor Robert Ze­meckis de­liv­ers an en­joy­able es­pi­onage thriller star­ring

Brad Pitt and Mar­ion Cotil­lard as a cou­ple tus­sling with love, loy­alty, sus­pi­cion and de­cep­tion in the midst of World War Two.

Pitt plays a Cana­dian work­ing for Bri­tish in­tel­li­gence, and he hooks up with Cotil­lard’s French Re­sis­tance fighter in Morocco. Their mis­sion: as­sas­si­nate the Nazi am­bas­sador. They must pose as hus­band and wife; a year later, in Lon­don, they are hus­band and wife for real. Then comes news that Bri­tish in­tel­li­gence has sprung a leak... Sump­tu­ously glossy,

Al­lied looks fab­u­lous. And so do its stars. Take a step back, and the film’s melo­dra­matic in­trigue be­gins to look shaky, but there are so many se­quences of high sus­pense you might not even no­tice. Dir: Robert Ze­meckis 2016, 15, 145min

To­gether: Pitt and Cotil­lard
