During the Cold War, the Soviet Union captures U.S. pilot Francis Gary Powers after shooting down his U-2 spy plane.

If all goes well, the Russians would get Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance), the convicted spy who Donovan defended in court.

Flick Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Superbly paced, written and acted movie by master director Steven Spielberg. Enthralling depiction of real events during the height of the cold war. Highly recommended.

Excellent film, very strong lead performances and sustained tension. Great start to the autumn season!

A really good film. Excellent acting. Intriguing storyline based on fact. Enjoyed by all but 1 of our audience!
