DI­REC­TOR: Ben Lewin CAST: Paul Rudd, Con­nie Nielsen, Mark Strong

Moe Berg (Paul Rudd) was a Ma­jor League Base­ball player in the 1930s, spoke seven lan­guages, had an un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree from Prince­ton and a law de­gree from Columbia. He was also a US gov­ern­ment spy, tasked with de­ter­min­ing how close Ger­many was to de­vel­op­ing the atomic bomb. This biopic is far from dull but the screen­play doesn’t re­ally paint a clear pic­ture about Moe, per­haps be­cause in real life he re­mained a bit of an enigma.
