THE COURIER (12) 112 minutes

Set against the backdrop of the Cuban Missile Crisis and loosely based on the real-life story of Greville Wynne. Benedict Cumberbatch plays Wynne, an unremarkable British businessman, who was recruited by MI6 as a courier for high-level Soviet informer Oleg Penkovsky. How did a man with no experience at all in espionage go on to play a major role in one of the most productive covert operations ever conducted by MI6 and the CIA against the USSR?

'This is a damn good, explosively tense story that focuses on the friendship that develops between two men on opposite sides. And it is plainly wonderful.' (The Spectator)
