Benedict Cumberbatch stars in this thrilling old school spy adventure. Set in the 1960’s, it follows an unassuming British businessman who is recruited into one of the greatest international conflicts in history. At the behest of the UK’s MI-6 and a CIA operative, he forms a covert, dangerous partnership with a Soviet officer in an effort to provide crucial intelligence needed to prevent a nuclear confrontation. It sounds like an adaptation of a long-lost John Le Carre novel, but it’s all the more fascinating to learn that this is in fact based on real events that helped to defuse the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Dir: Dominic Cooke. Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Merab Ninidze, Rachel Brosnahan, Jessie Buckley, Angus Wright
