Matt Charman and the Coen brothers team up to create the screenplay for this dramatic thriller based on true events. Steven Spielberg directs the tale of James Donovan (Hanks), an insurance lawyer from Brooklyn, who is brought in by the CIA during the Cold War to negotiate the swap of detained Soviet spy Rudolf Abel (Rylance) for captured American pilot Francis Gary Powers (Stowell). As Donovan becomes more and more entrenched in the political tug-of-war, he is forced to risk everything to accomplish his goal.
