This gripping, stranger-than-fiction espionage thriller provides to life the remarkable real tale of Moe Berg, the specialist baseball participant who turned a Environment War II spy. A Jewish, Princeton-educated, multilingual catcher for the Boston Pink Sox with a closely-guarded non-public existence, the enigmatic Berg (Paul Rudd) was already a guy of thriller when, in 1944, the US government’s wartime intelligence company enlisted his services. His mission: go guiding enemy strains in Europe to assassinate the Nazi’s chief nuclear scientist ahead of the Germans produce an atomic bomb. Buying and selling in his catcher’s mitt for a trench coat, Berg should count on his formidable, steel-trap intellect in a high-stakes activity of cat and mouse—with the destiny of the entire world hanging in the harmony. Jeff Daniels, Paul Giamatti, and Sienna Miller costar in this outstanding slice of neglected heritage.
