Bridge Of Spies
Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks unite for cold war drama Bridge of Spies. In 1957, insurance lawyer James Donovan (Hanks) is unexpectedly given the task of defending suspected spy Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance) in the US courts. When an American U-2 pilot is downed over the Soviet Union, Donovan is called upon by the CIA to negotiate a release, using Abel as a bargaining chip. With script input from Joel and Ethan Coen, Bridge of Spies is a well-paced and taut historical drama.
