Free Members-Only Screening: The Courier

Please note…

This screening has reached its registration capacity.

Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to watch The Courier in our Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room, powered by Vision Media. A special pre-recorded conversation with director Dominic Cooke and writer Tom O’Connor, moderated by Clayton Davis (Film Awards Editor, Variety), is included as part of this screening experience.

In this true-life Cold War spy thriller, unassuming British businessman Greville Wynne (Benedict Cumberbatch) becomes entangled in one of the greatest international conflicts in history. Recruited by MI6 and a CIA operative (Angus Wright and 2018 Primetime Emmy® and 2018 & 2019 Golden Globe® winner Rachel Brosnahan; The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Best Actress in a TV Comedy Series), Wynne forms a covert partnership with Soviet officer Oleg Penkovsky (Merab Ninidze), and both men risk everything in a danger-fraught race against time to provide the intelligence needed to prevent nuclear confrontation and end the Cuban Missile Crisis.

From Lionsgate, The Courier will be available on Blu-Ray, DVD & Digital June 1. Watch the official trailer here.

2021, 111 minutes, color | Directed by Dominic Cooke | Written by Tom O’Connor | Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Merab Ninidze, Rachel Brosnahan, Jessie Buckley, Angus Wright | Produced by Adam Ackland, Ben Browning, Ben Pugh, Rory Aitken
