- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: After two Allied spies fall in love and get married after initially posing as spouses for a mission, an unexpected revelation has the husband begin to question their relationship.
- It's 1942 and Max Vatan (BRAD PITT) is a Canadian spy who's just parachuted into French Morocco where he's to pose as the traveling husband of Marianne Beauséjour (MARION COTILLARD), a French resistance spy who's infiltrated a circle of Germans and German supporters. Their goal is to fool the locals into believing they're a real and harmless couple all while plotting to assassinate the German ambassador there. Right before that occurs, they let their business behavior turn romantic, and upon completing the mission Max arranges for Marianne to join him in London.
There, he continues to work alongside his colleague George Kavanagh (DANIEL BETTS) for Colonel Frank Heslop (JARED HARRIS) in the British government's Special Operations Executive, and not long thereafter Max and Marianne have a baby girl. Despite the bombardment of London by German forces, things seem good for the couple until Max receives troubling information from a commanding officer. It seems that there's evidence of espionage that has him progressively being to question his relationship with Marianne. From that point on, and against orders to stand down, Max tries to learn the truth and figure out what to do if that turns out not to be what he desires.
