Saw this today and yes, it's a high-budget BBC TV film and yes, the story arc as a whole is incredibly predictable and yes, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I haven't seen any of Hallström's films since the incredibly underrated and semi-forgotten The Hoax, so this is another bright spot among stuff like Chocolat and whatever the most recent Nicholas Sparks adaptation is.

Kristin Scott Thomas plays her role of government PR woman really well. And I've yet to see a role that Amr Waked doesn't do well.

Plus, it's got Lord Varys as Obi Wan's boss!
