Alex Rider

Fans of Hanna or His Dark Materials will find plenty to enjoy in this polished and propulsive spy thriller, produced by British company Eleventh Hour Films. Lending gravitas are British actors Vicky McClure and Stephen Dillane, while Otto Farrant (Mrs Wilson, Marcella) is excellent in the eponymous role.





After his undercover agent uncle is killed, teenager Alex Rider (Otto Farrant) is recruited by the Department of Special Operations at MI6 to infiltrate a mysterious school called Point Blanc where the ultra-rich send their wayward offspring.
