The power of cinema is strong in this one.
Every year around Oscar season there come stories about unlikely heroes that we have yet to know about. That are brought to light by cinematic glory. This year it's James B. Donovan played by Tom Hanks in Bridge of Spies.
This is a 2hr 21min. dialogue driven movie I was never bored by. The credit has to go to Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and the writers.
Spielberg's direction was once again magnificent. Wide panning shot that reveals new information every time.
Tom Hanks was glorious in this movie. This is one of those movie that is so dialogue heavy that you needed a quality actor to carry it. And he did it amazingly.
The story about James B. Donovan was brilliant, what he did to save the prisoners, very informative and moving to know that people like this existed.
