During the Cold War, an American lawyer is recruited to defend an arrested Soviet spy in court, and then help the CIA facilitate an exchange of the spy for the Soviet captured American U2 spy plane pilot, Gary Powers. An excellent portrayal of America in mid-century: ‘simply the best film Spielberg has made in decades’, with outstanding performances by Hanks and Rylance.
