The Courier (12A) 112mins

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

Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Merab Ninidze, Rachel Brosnahan, Jessie Buckley and Angus Wright.

'There's real drama, and even thrills, to be found in this story of a very unlikely friendship that changed the course of history' ★★★★Empire

'Benedict Cumberbatch is brilliant in one of the most insightful spy movies in years’ ★★★★ The Independent

'Benedict Cumberbatch shines in this gripping true-life espionage thriller’ ★★★★The Telegraph


'a showcase for Cumberbatch'  The Guardian

'The Courier is almost two films in one: the second half is much darker and more intense than the first, but the shift is so delicately abrupt that at first you barely register it. That's part of the movie's edgily engaging artistry'  Time Magazine

'Cumberbatch, emaciated and shaven-headed, exposes the slightly alien being he always contains and the film gears up considerably in emotional impact. This is Cumberbatch's best espionage film, then, after Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy'  New Statesman
