The Good Shepherd 2006
The true story of the birth of the CIA through the eyes of a man who never existed.
Plot: The tumultuous early history of the Central Intelligence Agency is viewed through the prism of one man's life.
Story: Laconic and self-contained, Edward Wilson heads CIA covert operations during the Bay of Pigs. The agency suspects that Castro was tipped, so Wilson looks for the leak. As he investigates, he recalls, in a series of flashbacks, his father's death, student days at Yale (poetry; Skull and Bones), recruitment into the fledgling OSS, truncated affairs, a shotgun marriage, cutting his teeth on spy craft in London, distance from his son, the emergence of the Cold War, and relationships with agency, British, and Soviet counterparts. We watch his idealism give way to something else: disclosing the nature of that something else is at the heart of the film's narration as he closes in on the leak.
Did you know: The violinist providing the solo soundtrack near the end of the movie was Lindsay Deutsch, from Los Angeles.
