Synopsis: The film follows reformed-criminal and former special ops soldier Pete Hoffman who, in order to free himself from jail and return to his wife and daughter, has been working undercover for crooked FBI handlers to infiltrate the Polish mob’s drug trade in New York. In a final step towards freedom, Hoffman must return to the one place he’s fought so hard to leave, Bale Hill Prison, where his mission becomes a race against time when a drug deal goes wrong and threatens his identity as a mole.

Release Date: August 30, 2019 (UK) | Length: 113 min | Genre: Crime, Drama | MPAA Rating: Rated R for strong violence and pervasive language.

Note: Release date moved from August 17, 2018 to February 1, 2019 and then to March 22, 2019. Title changed from “Three Seconds” to “The Informer”. The film keeps missing its US release date so I’m reverting to its UK release date.
