Naomie Harris co-stars opposite Ewan McGregor in the film adaptation of John le Carre’s novel “Our Kind of Traitor,” a crime thriller directed by Susanna White.
In the film, McGregor and Harris play ordinary English couple Perry and Gail, on vacation in Marrakech, who befriend a flamboyant and charismatic Russian, Dima (Stellan Skarsgård), who, unbeknownst to them, is a kingpin money launderer for the Russian mafia. When Dima asks for their help to deliver classified information to the British Secret Services, Perry and Gail get caught in a dangerous world of international espionage and dirty politics. The couple is propelled on a perilous journey through Paris and Bern, a safe house in the French Alps, to the murky corners of London and an alliance with the British Government via a ruthless and determined MI6 agent (Damian Lewis).
Adapted by Hossein Amini, Roadside Attractions/Lionsgate will release the film nationwide (USA) on July 1.
A first trailer has been released and is embedded below; although Naomie Harris is barely in it, and doesn’t appear to have very much to do, despite the above synopsis which suggests otherwise:
