Bridge of Spies

A 2015 Award winning espionage thriller: Recommended by Bill Evertsberg and Jo Forrest.

Directed by Steven Spielberg, written by the Coen Bros and Matt Charman.

Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg team up for Bridge of Spies, an absorbing true-life espionage tale beautifully directed and acted. Spielberg captures the arc of a man who is caught up in something bigger than himself and somehow rises to the occasion. Jim Donovan (Tom Hanks), plays an insurance lawyer called into duty by his government when artist/painter, Rudolph Abel (Mark Rylance), is captured for the crime of espionage against the United States on behalf of the USSR. It is 1957, and the Cold War is a constant concern. The movie centers on a spy swap involving a Soviet mole, Adolph Abel an American U-2 pilot, Francis Gary Powers an American student, and Frederic Prior who ends up on the wrong side of the Berlin Wall.  The outstanding cast includes Tom Hanks, Mark Rylance, Alan Alda, and Amy Ryan.
