Dealing with the subject of unethical torture, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tahir Rahim and Jodie Foster’s 9/11 drama The Mauritanian has been directed by acclaimed filmmaker Kevin Macdonald. The movie is based on the real-life story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi, who was imprisoned wrongfully and held for a period of 14 years without so much as a fair trial. It is his journey that the film seeks to tell in this procedural thriller.
