Synopsis

THE COURIER is a true-life spy thriller, the story of an unassuming British businessman Greville Wynne (Benedict Cumberbatch) recruited into one of the greatest international conflicts in history. At the behest of the UK’s MI-6 and a CIA operative (Rachel Brosnahan), he forms a covert, dangerous partnership with Soviet officer Oleg Penkovsky (Merab Ninidze) in an effort to provide crucial intelligence needed to prevent a nuclear confrontation and defuse the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Reviews

"As the pressures on Wynne increase, and the missions become more dangerous, the spectacle of this average man trying to stay safe becomes riveting."

- San Francisco Chronicle


"A decorous, solidly smart thriller whose menace maintains a sort of low, steady hum."

- Entertainment Weekly


"A solid spy drama about ordinary people caught up in Cold War espionage."

- Hollywood Reporter
