The Courier | ★★★★★★★★☆☆

I lived through the Cuban Missile Crisis in my early teens. Like most people, I hadn't a clue about what was going on in the world of international covert operations. This movie is about one of those ops.

This 2021 true-life spy thriller tells the story of British businessman Greville Wynne, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, who was recruited into covert service to transport Russian intelligence.

As the story darkens the brightness, and the bravery, of Mr Wynne shines. In a gutsy display of loyalty across enemy lines, he puts everything on the line. His quiet courage was inspiring.

I found the movie to be impactful. I liked it and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★★☆☆.
