Reviews

"GRIPPING, crisply acted. A tight and suspenseful ethical thriller." - A.O. Scott, NY TIMES

"Full of humor, tragedy, political thoughtfulness and sharply observed details." -Andrew O'Hehir, SALON

"Holland (is) in masterful form...long on narrative power, emotional conviction and moral responsibility." - Stuart Klawans, The Nation

"A deluxe multi-character drama that blends real history with semi-fictionalized spy thriller and soap opera elements. We could almost be watching an Iron Curtain version of Mad Men." - Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter
