Controversial UK anti-terror law now the subject of a movie
The risks that anti-terrorism laws pose to civil liberties, some of which have been the subject of submissions by the legal profession, are the focus of a new British movie, Closed Circuit. Eric Bana stars as counsel for the defence in a complex terrorism case in which a "special advocate" is given national security clearance to view classified material and the trial takes place in a closed session of the court. To find out where to see a preview, or to view a trailer, visit the movie's web site.
