The Independent Culture

A cabinet minister (Tom Hollander) bumbles and stumbles towards endorsing a war in the Middle East, largely so as not to lose face infront of his American counterparts (including James Gandolfini).

This big-screen spin-off of Armando Iannucci's satirical sitcom The Thick of It already feels a little dated in the post-Bush and Blair era, but it's still very funny, especially when Peter Capaldi is on screen as the awesomely offensive spin doctor Malcolm Tucker.
