MI6! Russian mobsters! Intrigue! Damian Lewis’ pursed lips!
All of the above are reasons to see Our Kind of Traitor, an adaptation of bestselling spy novelist John Le Carré’s work. Ewan McGregor plays a teacher who makes the really bad decision to get involved with the problems of a Russian mafioso played by the ever-gruff Stellan Skarsgard, and things look to devolve into a bunch of car chases, angry/confused European people, and betrayal from that point forward. Lewis stars as a member of MI6, while Naomie Harris plays McGregor’s girlfriend.
Our Kind of Traitor is out in theaters on Jul. 1.
