Chris Pine and Thandiwe Newton are sublime, subsumed with passion and regret, it's beautifully shot, sound-tracked and story-boarded - so the delicate pace drip feeds a continually changing and compelling world. The riveting story here isn't a who done it spy drama but the question that has defined each of the two leads lives, why did you break my heart? The answers are shattering.
