BRIDGE OF SPIES

Based on true events during the Cold War, a lawyer, James B. Donovan is recruited by the CIA and involved in an intense negotiation mission to release and exchange a CIA U-2 spy-plane pilot, Francis G. Powers. The pilot was arrested alive after his plane was shot down by the Soviet Union during a mission and stays in the company of a KGB intelligence officer, Rudolf Abel, who was arrested for espionage in the US.

Starring Tom Hanks, and Mark Rylance, directed by Steven Spielberg

6 Oscar nominations, won Best Supporting Actor

Certificate 12

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”.
