Now Showing: Bridge of Spies
Directed by Steven Spielberg from a screenplay written by Matt Charman, Ethan Coen and Joel Coen, BRIDGE OF SPIES stars Tom Hanks, Oscar winner Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan and Alan Alda. Based on the 1960 U-2 incident during the Cold War, the film tells the story of lawyer James B. Donovan (Hanks) who is entrusted with negotiating the release of Francis Gary Powers—a pilot whose U-2 spy plane was shot down over the Soviet Union—in exchange for Rudolf Abel (Rylance), a captive Soviet KGB spy held by the United States.
"Bridge of Spies" was nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Mark Rylance - which it won), and Best Original Screenplay.
