There is much to like in The Debt, an espionage thriller with Helen Mirren headlining an excellent cast. The international feel is spot-on, although some may find, like me, the jumping forward and back through time a bit disconcerting. I find no fault either with the star turns by Mirren, Tom Wilkinson and the ordinarily wooden Sam Worthington, who plays his part convincingly in this film. I could have done with more of Mirren on screen, but maybe that's because I am an especial fan. Certainly, Jessica Chastain, who plays her younger self in the movie does an excellent job. The heavy handed moral message detracts in the end, although not enough to spoil an otherwise fine film.
