The Debt

(2011)

The espionage thriller begins in 1997, as shocking news reaches retired Mossad secret agents Rachel (Academy Award winner Helen Mirren) and Stefan (two-time Academy Award nominee Tom Wilkinson) about their former colleague David (Ciarán Hinds of Focus’ “Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day”). All three have been venerated for decades by their country because of the mission that they undertook back in 1966, when the trio (portrayed, respectively, by Jessica Chastain [soon to be seen in “The Tree of Life”], Marton Csokas [Universal’s upcoming “Dream House”], and Sam Worthington [“Avatar,” “Clash of the Titans”]) tracked down Nazi war criminal Vogel (Jesper Christensen of “Casino Royale” and “Quantum of Solace”) in East Berlin. At great risk, and at considerable personal cost, the team’s mission was accomplished – or was it? The suspense builds in and across two different time periods, with startling action and surprising revelations.

‘The Debt’ Blu-ray and DVD Arrive December 6

Startling action and surprising revelations compel retired secret agent Rachel Singer (Academy Award winner Helen Mirren, The Queen) back into action in Focus Features and Miramax's critically acclaimed hit espionage thriller The Debt, directed by Academy Award nominee John Madden (Shakespeare in Love). Filmed on location in Tel Aviv, the U.K., and Budapest, The Debt will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand from Universal Studios Home Entertainment on December 6, 2011.

In 1997, shocking news reaches Rachel and Stephan (Academy Award nominee Tom Wilkinson, Michael Clayton) regarding their former colleague David (Ciarán Hinds, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) - from their secret mission in 1965-1966 to track down Nazi war criminal Dieter Vogel (Jesper Christensen, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace) in East Berlin. At great risk, and at considerable personal cost, the team's mission was accomplished - or was it? The stellar cast of The Debt also includes Jessica Chastain (The Help, The Tree of Life) as the young Rachel, used as bait to tighten the net around Vogel. She is also caught in a romantic triangle with her fellow agents, young David (Sam Worthington, Avatar, ), and Stephan (Marton Csokas, The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, The Bourne Supremacy). The suspense builds in and across the two different time periods, compelling Rachel to take matters into her own hands.
