American Movie Time with Serhii F.
The participants of Movie Time watched the American-German historical legal thriller film directed by Steven Spielberg from a screenplay written by Matt Charman. It is 'Bridge of Spies' based on the 1960 U-2 incident during the Cold War. The film tells the story of lawyer James B. Donovan, 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, a captive and convicted Soviet KGB spy held under the custody of the United States, whom he represented at trial. 
The name of the film refers to the Glienicke Bridge, which connects Potsdam with Berlin, where the spy exchange took placeDuring the Cold War, an American lawyer is recruited to defend an arrested Soviet spy in court, and then help the CIA facilitate an exchange of the spy for the Soviet captured American U2 spy plane pilot, Francis Gary Powers.
The moderator of this movie session led a quiz on the film. The prizes have been provided by the Embassy of the U.S. in Ukraine.
