Bridge of Spies

Review: Bridge of Spies

22 Oct 15

Great script, superbly filmed and acted

The Wednesday Loafers finally got our act together again and 7 of us went to a preview screening of "Bridge of Spies" today. This movie comes with great credentials - directed by Steven Speilberg; screenplay written by the Coen Brothers; starring Tom Hanks. The plot is largely based on a true story involving the spy exchange of a Soviet spy for Gary Powers, shot down in a U2 spy plane above Russia. Mark Rylance as Rudolf Abel, the Soviet spy, is very low key but simply superb. Well worth going to see. 2.5 hours long but the time flies! 4.5 stars.
