The Debt (2010)

Director: John Madden. Cast: Helen Mirren, Jessica Chastain, Sam Worthington, Tom Wilkinson. 113 min. Rated R. Drama/Thriller.

A rare heart-pounding thriller. Three Mousad agents are commissioned to East Berlin to capture and a send Nazi refugee ("the surgeon of Birkenau") to Israel to stand trial. They capture and are forced to kill him as he escapes. But wait ... there's a Hitchcockian twist there. No matter which side you're on, this highly unpredictable gripping tale will keep you guessing till the very end - and creates great doubt about the stories you hear from the post-WWII era. Incredible acting by Chastain and Mirren, as the young and old versions of the same character.

PS: You first read it here: Jessica Chastain is the next best thing in Hollywood.
