Fairly engaging for a behind the scenes story, that could be told in 20 minutes. Movie is a bit dragged out at over 2 hours, but excellent actors make it interesting almost out of nothing.
Colin Firth, Matthew Macfadyen of Succession, and Kelly Macdonald, whom my subconscious has a thing for ever since and because of the original Trainspotting, that I watched at an impressionable age.
In the background there's always great Jason Isaacs, Johnny Flynn of the excellent recent The Outfit, playing that one Ian Fleming, and Winston Churchill is portrayed by the same actor, who played the mob boss in The Outfit.
