The Catcher Was A Spy follows the true story of Boston RedSox catcher Moe Berg (Paul Rudd) who also worked for the Office of Strategic Services and was sent to kill Werner Heisenberg (Mark Strong) for possibly making a nuclear bomb.
The Film brings together an impressive and talented Cast consisting of Rudd, Strong, Sienna Miller, Guy Pearce, Jeff Daniels and Paul Giamatti. They all do a great job of bringing their characters to life but none more so then Daniels who steals every scene he’s in. This is also Rudd like you’ve never seen him. Playing a character unlike he ever has before. And he effortlessly disappears into Berg. It’s a compelling story that Director Ben Lewin and Screenwriter Robert Rodat turn into a strong Film.
The Catcher Was A Spy screens at Sundance on Jan. 19 at 8:30PM at The MARC PC, Jan. 24 at 6:30PM at Eccles PC, Jan. 25 at 9AM at Eccles PC, Jan. 27 at 5:30PM at The MARC PC, and Jan. 28 at 6:15PM at The Grand SLC.
Although the rain repeatedly held us back, we gained a bit of star-spotting momentum midday. Here’s some snaps from the rain-filled first Saturday of the Festival! Brrr.
Matt Damon. Lightning strikes twice and despite hearing rumours he was flying back to Europe to film the latest Bourne installment, we can confirm we saw him right before our eyes again heading to the Entertainment Weekly party!
Jean-Marc Vallée. We love Dallas Buyers Club and it was a great pleasure meeting finally the Canadian Filmmaker who created that masterpiece. He was represented by Opening Night Gala Demolition, starring Jake Gyllenhaal.
Our George Kozera attended the Premiere of He Named Me Malala by Davis Guggenheim at Ryerson Theatre and the response was unanimously positive for the Documentary. A Skype session with young activist Malala Yousafzai herself was held in the Q&A.
