Description

A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of historic events, Bridge of Spies is the story of James Donovan, a Brooklyn lawyer thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task of negotiating the release of a captured American U-2 pilot. Screenwriters Matt Charman and three-time Academy Award®-winners Ethan Coen and Joel Coen weave this remarkable experience in Donovan’s life into a story inspired by true events that captures the essence of a man who risked everything and vividly brings his personal journey to life. Directed by three-time Academy Award-winning director Steven Spielberg, Bridge of Spies stars two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks as James Donovan; three-time Tony Award® winner Mark Rylance as KGB agent Rudolf Abel; Academy Award nominee Amy Ryan as James’ wife, Mary; and Academy Award nominee Alan Alda as Thomas Watters, a partner at Donovan’s law firm.
