Movie of the Day: The Mauritanian (2021) by Kevin Macdonald

Justice seems an impossible dream in The Mauritanian, a powerful adaptation of Mohamedou Ould Slahi’s bestselling memoir. Snatched by the USA Government in 2001, Slahi (Tahar Rahim) spent years in Guantanamo Bay proclaiming his innocence. Lawyer Nancy Hollander (Jodie Foster) agrees to represent him and force a trial. Lt. Colonel Stuart Couch (Benedict Cumberbatch) heads a prosecution hell-bent on conviction. Contrasting the legal battle with scenes of the torture and humiliation that Slahi experienced, director Kevin Macdonald (One Day in September, Touching the Void) has created a heart-rending true-life drama. Nominated for 2 Golden Globes. Another 1 win & 5 nominations international film festivals.
