Movie Review: 'Bridge of Spies'

Parents need to know that Steven Spielberg's "Bridge of Spies" is a tense, taut Cold War thriller inspired by real-life events. Tom Hanks stars as James Donovan, an upstanding American insurance lawyer who's assigned to defend a Soviet spy captured in Brooklyn, events that lead to a hostage exchange. Expect occasional swearing (including a couple of "f--k"s during a tense scene, plus "son of a bitch" and "goddamn hell"), a fair amount of era-accurate smoking, celebratory toasting and some brief, intense violence—most notably scenes in which a prisoner is harshly interrogated and others in which people are shot while trying to flee East Germany.
