Cinemascope: Allied

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2016.

Plot line: Max Vatan (Brad Pitt) and Marianne Beauséjour (Marion Cotillard) are World War II operatives who never reveal their true identities. After falling in love during a risky mission, they hope to leave all that double-dealing behind them and start new lives. Instead, suspicion and danger envelop their marriage as both husband and wife become pitted against each other in an escalating, potentially lethal test that has global consequences.

How much can you ever know another person? Wouldn't that be so much harder if you were both spies? This is an interesting look at relationships formed under war time conditions, but with a twist. I'd recommend this one for fans of period war movies, though it isn't about war as much as about the two main characters.

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a movie worth watching.
