Page Eight

Trust will be tested and lives placed at risk as psychological spy drama Page Eight comes to DVD from 5th September, 2011 courtesy of Universal Playback.

The feature-length drama, penned by Oscar nominee David Hare (The Hours), stars Bill Nighy (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Boat that Rocked) as long-serving MI5 officer Johnny Worricker and Rachel Weisz (The Mummy, The Lovely Bones) as political activist Nancy Pierpan, as they work together to uncover devastating revelations about political manoeuvres within the British Intelligence services.

Also starring in this fast paced secret revolution is Judy Davis (The Starter Wife, The Break Up), Michael Gambon (The Kings Speech, Harry Potter) and Ralph Fiennes (Clash of the Titans, The Reader).

The story follows Johnny Worricker as he investigates his boss and best friend Benedict Baron (Gambon) who dies suddenly, leaving behind him an inexplicable file, which threatens the stability of the organization.

Meanwhile, a seemingly chance encounter with Johnny's striking next-door neighbour Nancy Pierpan seems too good to be true. Johnny is forced to walk out of his job, and then out of his identity, to find out the truth.

Page Eight is both written and directed by Oscar-nominee David Hare and is produced by Harry Potter alumni David Heyman and David Barron.

The film is a co-production between Carnival Films (Downton Abbey, Any Human Heart, Whitechapel), Heyday Films (the Harry Potter series, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, I Am Legend) and Runaway Fridge (the Harry Potter series, Possession).

Featuring incisive extra materials such as interviews David Hare, Bill Nighy and other key cast and crew, and illuminating behind-the-scenes footage, Page Eight is a definite must-have for any fan of premium quality drama.
