A convicted spy. A captured U-2 pilot. Two nations locked in a Cold War. That is the world we are shown in Bridge of Spies.
Already charged with defending Soviet spy Rudolf Abel in court, American lawyer James Donovan must also negotiate an exchange between the U.S. and the Soviet Union for a downed American pilot. At its core, bridge of Spies is more political than procedural (such as John le Carre’s The Spy Who Came in from the Cold) examining the politics of the time and the difficulties experienced by its key figures.
Recommended for history buffs and fans of the spy genre.
