Bridge of Spies

Sunday August 14

8.30pm Foxtel Movies Premiere

WHEN you mix a true-history drama with all the makings of a thriller, you're bound to get a nail-biting film.  

And when your leading man is Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg is at the helm, it's a recipe for brilliance.   

Bridge of Spies is no exception.   

James Donovan is a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the centre of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible mission of negotiating the release of Francis Gary Powers - a pilot whose spy plane was gunned down over the Soviet union.   

Co-produced by Steven Spielberg, Marc E. Platt and Kristie Macosko Krieger, and written by Matt Charman, Ethan and Joel Coen.    The film also stars Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan, and Alan Alda.
