BRIDGE OF SPIES (Drama)
It’s 1957, and the world is gripped by Cold War paranoia. A simple Brooklyn insurance lawyer, James Donovan, unwillingly ends up in its epicentre, when the CIA first asks him to defend a Soviet spy in court, then sends him away to East Berlin with a nearly impossible task — negotiate for the exchange of the pilot of a downed American U2 spy plane.
Tom Hanks stars in this retro spy thriller on the lately resurgent theme of the Cold War, filmed by Steven Spielberg and written by the Coen brothers. One of 2016’s most likely Oscar contenders. The film is based on real events.
