Kate Winslet roots out secret agents in the intriguing Enigma

The Stars: Kate Winslet and Dougray Scott

The Story: A mathematician (Scott) working for British intelligence during World War II learns that his work is being compromised by a German spy. He joins forces with a plucky colleague (Winslet) to get to the bottom of things.


What's Good: Eye-catching period costumes and sets, plus solid work from both the brooding Scott a
nd the menacing Jeremy Northam. Winslet has a blast as a sort of English Nancy Drew, and screenwriter Tom Stoppard provides crackling dialogue.

What's Bad: Twists and turns that get a little too head-spinning.
