In 1960, Oleg finds two American students, hands them a piece of paper, and tells them to take it to the American embassy.  Oleg believes the Soviet leaders don’t want peace or negotiations, only war.  While Oleg loves his country, the thinks the rulers are corrupt.  Oleg’s information makes it into the hands of a CIA agent.  The CIA agent brings the info to an MI6 agent, and they discuss who to use as Oleg’s courier.  It can’t be anyone with a military background.  And that person can move in and out of Moscow undetected and without question.  They find Greville Wynne.  A meek, unassuming businessman from Great Britain.  He travels all over the world to find the needs within a factory and recommends fixes.  He can be their connection to American engineering.  The agents tell Greville that he will go to Moscow.  He will have a meeting with his usual sales pitch.  After the meeting, Oleg will approach Greville and assess Greville’s ability to do the job.  Once the two have met, Oleg determines Greville is adequate and gives Greville more information.  Greville returns the information to the MI6 and CIA agents and readies to leave.  The agents stop him.  This hand-off was one of many. And if Greville wanted to give his family a fighting chance to survive a Cold War, he will continue to courier Oleg’s information.  Oleg and Greville’s partnership leaves a lasting impact on the world we live in today.

It’s hard to believe Oleg and Greville’s impact on the world then, the world today, and the world to come.  If you know anyone who doesn’t believe one person can make a change, take them to this movie.  These family men form an unbreakable bond and save the world.  They dodge the KGB, death threats, and poisonings to stand up for the world they want for their children.  While one man walked away, both suffered an indescribable consequence for saving the world from nuclear war.  Their effect on humankind should never be overlooked or forgotten.  The acting, costumes, hair, and make-up were flawless.  The movie’s pace slowed down as the script delved into their private lives, but delving allowed the viewer to see Oleg’s and Greville’s unique motivation for spying and treason.  

I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars
