The Good Shepherd
Robert De Niro directs and stars in this espionage drama exploring the secret history of the Central Intelligence Agency, from World War Two to the Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961. The film focuses on the personal and professional struggles of Edward Wilson (Matt Damon), whose membership of a secret society while studying at Yale leads him into a career with the government's intelligence agency. Edward's job forces him to lead an evasive life, sometimes neglecting his role as a husband and father, until one day he is forced to make the terrible choice between national security and the safety of his own family. Angelina Jolie stars as his wife, alongside Alec Baldwin, Billy Crudup and Michael Gambon as the star-studded cast.
