Brad Pitt and Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard make a beautiful on-screen pairing in Robert Zemeckis’ espionage action thriller.

Set before and during WWII, it finds intelligence officer Max (Pitt) stationed in 1942 North Africa, where he meets French Resistance fighter Marianne (Cotillard) on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Falling deeply in love, they reunite afterwards in London and marry; but find their relationship threatened by questions of allegiance amid the extreme pressures of the Second World War. It’s a gripping, breathless story full of dramatic and romantic tension and complemented by Pitt and Cotillard’s palpable chemistry.
