Disappointing..

The piece opens with Steven Spielberg's family history with the real life events and follows with cast and crew examining the politics and history of the time, the screenplay's inspirations, espionage and intelligence gathering of the era, the story's relevance today, character attributes, and the Francis Gary Powers and Frederic Pryor stories and their depictions in the film. A Case of the Cold War: Bridge of Spies is a 2016 documentary about the Steven Spielberg Tom Hanks feature that just like the movie will basically bore the heck out of it's audience.
