Bridge of Spies

Sunday, Feb 7, 5:30 pm
Monday, Feb 8, 7:30 pm
141 minutes
PG-13

Starring: Tom Hanks, Alan Alda, Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan
 
Bridge of Spies tells the story of James Donovan (Tom Hanks), a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.
 
Director: Steven Spielberg
 
What the critics are saying:
 
Total Film, Phillip Kemp
 
Political intrigue abounds as Spielberg grippingly recreates a famous real-life spy-swap case of the Cold War, with both Hanks and Rylance on top form.

 
Chicago Sun-Times, Richard Roeper
 
Spielberg has taken an important but largely forgotten and hardly action-packed slice of the Cold War and turned it into a gripping character study and thriller that feels a bit like a John Le Carre adaptation if Frank Capra were at the controls.
 
Chicago Tribune, Michael Phillips
 
The film is an anomaly — a confident, slightly square, highly satisfying example of old-school Hollywood craftsmanship, starring a major movie star brandishing a briefcase, and a handkerchief, rather than a pistol.
 
The Globe and Mail (Toronto), Kate Taylor
 
The ever-reliable Hanks sympathetically personifies all in America that is worth fighting for, while his British colleague’s surprisingly comic version of Rudolf Abel portrays the Russian spy as a man quietly steadfast in his loyalty to a different cause.
 
Washington Post, Ann Hornaday
 
Bridge of Spies expands from being a smart, engrossing procedural to a carefully observed character study of Donovan, a particularly intriguing, heretofore overlooked American figure.
