The Russia House
It’s hard to resist a good spy movie, and it’s especially hard when it stars Sean Connery and Michelle Pfeiffer.

The Adjustment Bureau
Based on the Philip K. Dick short story “Adjustment Team,” this romantic sci-fi thriller tells the love story of a politician and a ballerina (played by Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, respectively) who are kept apart by a team of mysterious agents.
