The Game of Thrones actress stars in the new film based on Joe Sharkey’s 1993 non-fiction book of the same name, which came from a true story. Now, Australia’s Madman Films has debuted the official international trailer for the new true-crime thriller Above Suspicion, the latest film from the director Phillip Noyce.
Clarke stars as Susan Smith, an impoverished woman, who is living in an Appalachian mountain town in Kentucky. She agrees to be a police informant to make some extra cash, providing information on a local bank robber. When she is matched-up with FBI agent Mark Putnam (Boardwalk Empire‘s Jack Huston), the two become romantically involved. She sees in him her means of escape; instead, it is a ticket to disaster for both of them. This scandal shook the foundations of the nation’s top law enforcement agency, ending in the first-ever conviction of an FBI agent for murder.
