The Courier

Thriller Rated: PG-13 112 min
Saturday, August 28

A riveting spy-thriller based on a true story about one of the greatest international conflicts in history.  Unassuming British businessman Greville Wynne (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his Russian source work together to provide the crucial intelligence used to defuse to the Cuban Missile Crisis.

“The Courier is almost two films in one: the second half is much darker and more intense than the first, but the shift is so delicately abrupt that at first you barely register it. That’s part of the movie’s edgily engaging artistry…” — Stephanie Zacharek, Time Magazine
