The true story of the unassuming Brooklyn insurance lawyer who secured the release of a captured American pilot from the Soviet Union marks Steven Spielberg's latest bid for Oscar glory.It stars Tom Hanks as lawyer James Donovan and Shakespearean actor Mark Rylance as Rudolf Abel, an undercover Soviet agent, captured and put on trial in New York.Spielberg portrays Donovan as going above and beyond to defend Abel at trial, save him from death and hand him over to the Soviets in exchange for a shot down U-2 pilot and a detained American student.An award-winning stage actor, Rylance starred in this year's hit BBC series "Wolf Hall" and will also star in Spielberg's forthcoming "The BFG" an adaptation of the Roald Dahl story.
