- You don't want to know. - Tell me.
You'll regret it.
Tell me the truth, Coleman.
I'm giving you one last chance to walk away from all this
and live the rest of your life in peace.
You lived in poverty because with a criminal record,
Alec was only employable only in the lowest positions.
We fired Alec from the service in 1942.
We fired him.
No, he uncovered the... the traitors at the Egyptian Embassy.
I typed it up, I... I heard it.
Ah, no, you typed up his translations.
But he didn't translate what he actually heard.
Well, he embellished the facts.
He spun us a fantastical web of intrigue,
I mean, a wonderful spy story, none of it actually true.
No, he helped us win the war!
No, he didn't.
MI5 spent months,
precious, wasted months,
trying to track down this so-called Egyptian spy ring.
He went to Alamein, I saw the passport, I saw the stamps...
-不 都是伪造的 -我看到了 不
- No, it was faked... - I saw... No.
- He was in prison for fraud. - No.
-44年又再次入狱 -不 别说了
- Jailed again in '44. - No, stop it!
- You should have stuck to your guns... - Stop it!
...and left him.
- Alec's skills of deception were judged... - Stop it!
...to be so dangerous
that the service decided to watch him for the rest of his life.
No, you're lying!
You're his handler, I saw you. I saw you with him.
People saw you at the hospital, they saw you with him.
As I said, the service decided to watch him.
He was under my surveillance.
I don't believe you.
I think you already do.
原谅我 圣父 我有罪
Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.
I have been trusting.
Forgive me, for I loved my husband.
I believed him.
I lied to my sons.
Forgive me for being weak - so weak!
自负 愚蠢 只是...
And vain and stupid - just...!
He offers you hope,
so you lower your guard, and then he disappears.
You think God has abandoned you.
You loved Alec so very much, didn't you?
What you need now is sleep.
There is a community of Servite women
who take others in - for retreat.
I could call them?
God is testing you.
Search for a chink of light.
It will come.
And when it does...
..open yourself up and let God in.
Who is this?
My husband gave me this number.
He-he left me a card in his wallet.
Then we need to have another talk, Mrs Wilson.
Mr Karim, is that you?
Yes. I've just got back from Lahore.
If you knew about Alec's work,
why didn't you tell me before?
I'm sorry, I made a promise to Alec many years ago.
Let me explain.
Here we are.
Please have a seat.
I don't need much.
Just enough for an odd visit home and
the subscription to my club.
You've been in the wars.
It was all a lie.
Everything Alec told me.
I have no idea what you can add...
But I know that Alec was sacked in 1942 for lying.
He was sacked for telling the truth, Mrs Wilson.
There was a group of agents in MI5
who wanted control of Alec's phone line to the Egyptian embassy.
Why? Couldn't they just read his transcripts?
Don't assume everyone in the service was on the same side.
You think that Alec was set up by a double agent working in MI5?
I don't think so.
I know it.
They said that Alec was fabricating material,
so they could sack him.
With their own man on the line,
they could send intelligence straight through to Moscow.
But how could they do that?
How could they smear Alec like that?
He was a story teller, and he didn't help himself, you see?
The complicated love life,
the reckless exaggerations about his background.
What a good friend you are, Mr Karim, protecting Alec like this.
...It's all true.
You want me to believe in him again.
I just don't have the strength.
Gordon said you're OK now, that you've been to see him.
-牛津怎么样 -很好 我的宿舍特别棒
- How's Oxford? - It's great. My digs are really nice.
Good. That's good.
Listen, Mum, I know you miss Dad,
but me and Gordon - we're always here.
Where do you learn such kindness, Nigel?
I love you.
Look, I'd better go.
I'll call you at the weekend.
你比你想的更坚强 妈妈 坚持下去就好
You're stronger than you think, Mum. Just keep going.
我会的 再见 亲爱的
I will. Bye, my love.
These are all the letters Alec wrote pleading his case.
But as soon as he made progress,
they framed him planted stolen goods on him.
