Charlize Theron channels her inner spy as she becomes an MI6 operative who is deployed onto the chaotic and paranoia-ridden streets of Berlin shortly before the wall’s collapse. Boasting an all-star cast including the likes of Eddie Marsan, James McAvoy, Toby Jones and John Goodman, the film has received critical acclaim and has a sequel scheduled.
In the days leading up to the collapse of the Berlin Wall, an MI6 agent is killed by KGB agent Yuri Bakhtin, who steals the List – a microfilm document concealed in the deceased agent’s wristwatch that contains the names of every intelligence agent (on both sides) active in Berlin. Shortly after, elite agent Lorraine Broughton is debriefed and assigned to the MI6 spy bureau in Berlin where she is tasked with retrieving the dossier and putting an end to an shadowy espionage ring. Once there, she teams up with an embedded station chief, Percival (McAvoy) to navigate her way through a deadly game of cat and mouse.
