Four Lions (2010) Film
In this British film satire about Islamist friends and their holy war, Benedict can be seen as negotiator.
Four Lions is a British film satire from 2010 about an Islamic terrorist cell in Sheffield/England. Due to its controversial subject matter, the film had problems in the U.S., since no film distribution was found. Even two years later when the film was to be aired in Germany, a leading politician expressed his concerns about the film that could accelerate Islamist attacks.
Nevertheless – or perhaps even because of it – the film received 19 nominations and won 6 awards, including the BAFTA Film Award for Best Newcomer.
In this widely debated film Benedict Cumberbatch is seen as a negotiator.
