Drab English teacher Ruth Gilmartin is astonished when her mother, Sally, reveals that she is really Eva, a Russian ?migr? recruited by the Brits to manipulate the press to force the U.S. into WWII. Her British spymaster, and lover, Lucas Romer, betrays Eva, and she must assume other identities to escape Romer's death sentence. Incomparable British actress Rosamund Pike plays the two women with compassion and verve as the story follows the parallel lives of mother and daughter. She shows her greatest skill in the climax when she superbly portrays not only Sally and Ruth, but the despicable Romer as well, in a stunning confrontation.
