THE GOOD SHEPHERD (2006 USA)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

The Good Shepherd—great story—supports itself with the terrific casting choices of Matt Damon, Eddie Redmayne, and Angelina Jolie. Although loosely based on the life of the person who was the first director of the CIA, it is well written and complicated enough to keep full adult engagement. The movie becomes one of Director Robert DeNiro’s best works.

Storyline

A young man recruited as a spy performs a variety of tasks through his life that eventually leads to his appointment as the first head of the CIA.
