Archie (Paul Rhys) has a problem.Several, actually. Washed up in his career as a British spy, tethered in an unloving marriage, and a job which he’s come to loathe, he’s not exactly at the top of his game. But things get worse when stolen secret tapes make him the target of an assassination attempt by senior M16 officials. He survives the elimination of his departmental colleagues only to be confronted by his long-time friend and ex-CIA “problem solver” Ennis – who has been hired to finish the job. On the strength of their long-time acquaintance, Ennis grants Archie a stay of execution for 48 hours, provided Archie can produce the tapes in question. As the grim reality of his plight begins to dawn on him, a chance encounter with an alluring young woman fires up the long lost passion and fight that Archie once possessed. This dry-as-Melba-Toast, droll British meta-thriller is a wry delight, boasting a fabulously spot-on performance from British character actor Rhys, an inspired cast of twisted characters, and an engagingly witty script.

Director Rob Holder is expected to attend both screenings.
