The Man

Courtesy Of "PlayHouse"

Stephen Fry, Zoë Wanamaker, Stellan Skarsgård and Hayley Atwell star in a Sandi Toksvig’s chilling look at how an unelected few decide the fate of the masses.

A young fledging banker (Atwell) meets a knowledgeable professor (Fry) and his colleague (Wanamaker) at an exclusive hotel for what she believes to be a routine meeting with clients handed down to her by her father. As it turns out, she is seriously unaware of the details regarding her role and the people she is about to advise.
She is still floundering when ‘The Man’ (Skarsgård) arrives disguised as a waiter, and changes into a suit which he had hidden under a cloche. Pulling her even further from her corporate comfort zone, they force her to join them in a game of cards while they discuss the agenda for the following day’s meeting with the “leaders of tomorrow”. Convinced she is living in “some kind of Dan Brown novel”, she learns the shocking truth about SARS, Al Qaeda, Third World debt and the Congo.

What she discovers means that she will never believe what she hears or reads again, and that the people in the room play a secret role in the manipulation of the entire world to ensure that the West always reigns supreme.
