SKY MOVIES GREATS – Sunday 9 August, 8.30pm
Tony Scott directs this smart espionage thriller starring Academy Award®-winner Robert Redford as a C.I.A. maverick, on the eve of retirement, whose protégée (Academy Award®-nominee Brad Pitt) awaits execution in a Chinese prison. A complex and fascinating flashback tracks the friendship and mentorship between the two men. Tracing through decades of international action and intrigue and leading to the younger agent perhaps double crossing the agency and possibly going rogue.
