About the film:
“Bridge of Spies” tells the story of James Donovan (Tom Hanks), a Brooklyn lawyer and Harvard Law School alumnus, who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on a near impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot. High stakes and suspense power a story inspired by true events that capture the essence of a man who risked everything and vividly brings his personal journey to life.
