I recently attended a screening of the movie Bridge of Spies. What a great story of an overlooked American hero. James Donovan believably portrayed by Tom Hanks will be Oscar nominated for his fine performance.
Donovan was an insurance company lawyer whose boss, played by Alan Alda asked him to provide defense council to an arrested Soviet spy, Rudolf Abel, calmly played by Mark Rylance. Donovan and his family are harassed for defending Abel. Donovan goes on to broker an exchange of two Americans held in Germany for Abel at the time the Berlin Wall was going up.
The great writing and directing and performances will keep you on the edge of your seat.Steven Spielberg did a beautiful job directing, and will no doubt be Oscar nominated for his work. Don’t miss this film.
