Starring Tom Hanks, and Mark Rylance, directed by Steven Spielberg
6 Oscar nominations, won Best Supporting Actor
Guardian 5/5 star review “Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance red hot in Steven Spielberg’s magnificent cold war thriller. The tense negotiations over the recovery of U2 pilot Gary Powers in 1960s Berlin are the real-life backdrop to this wonderfully uncynical. With terrific craftsmanship, pure storytelling gusto and that Midas-touch ability to find grounds for optimism everywhere, Steven Spielberg has dramatised a true-life cold war spy-swap drama”.
