A MOST WANTED MAN is an espionage thriller, based on a novel by John le Carré. When a half-Chechen, half-Russian, brutally tortured immigrant turns up in Hamburg's Islamic community, laying claim to his father's ill-gotten fortune, both German and US security agencies take a close interest: as the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man's true identity - oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist?

Director: Anton Corbijn Stars: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Daniel Brühl
