Mr. Kerrigan, how far you'll be willing to go with this?
If... and it's still a big if, if Harris is in anyway connect with the shooting I don't care whose toes I tread on, he becomes part of the investigation. No more, no less. Okay?

"Hidden Agenda" was an enjoyable political thriller. The story was a somewhat typical Irish against the bloody English set in the late 1980's. The strength of the movie was in the fine acting by Frances McDormand, as usual, Brian Cox and many others. The ending some may find unsatisfactory. It tends to be open ended. I thought it provided much speculation on what Frances McDormand would do. I also thought it to be true to life.
