This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
A very timely movie in light of this week’s appalling news, with our president’s treasonous relationship with Russia now confirmed. This film may be slow and dated, but Jewison moves it effectively to that stunning climax where the Americans and the Russians band together to save the kid dangling from the church. Which is a total deus ex machina, but hey: It works. The film’s message of peace during Cold War Times is moving.
