Caught in the crossfires of civil war, CIA operatives must send a former American diplomat on a mission to negotiate for the life of a friend he left behind. From the writer of The Bourne Trilogy comes the “tense and ever-twisting” (Chicago Sun-Times) dramatic thriller Beirut.
Golden Globe winner Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”, Baby Driver) stars as Mason Skiles, a former U.S. diplomat, who gets sent to Beirut to negotiate a swap for the release of a terrorist leader, believed to be imprisoned by Israeli secret police, in exchange for a CIA agent who has been kidnapped. Confronted by ghosts from his past, Mason faces a formidable question: Who do you trust in a world where the truth emerges only when it’s convenient – or profitable?
Directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist), produced and written by Tony Gilroy (The Bourne Franchise, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), the critically acclaimed film also stars Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Dean Norris (“Breaking Bad”).
