★★★★ "Benedict Cumberbatch, Jessie Buckley shine in Cold War thriller" - Stuff.co.nz.  

THE COURIER is a true-life spy thriller, the story of an unassuming British businessman Greville Wynne (Benedict Cumberbatch) recruited into one of the greatest international conflicts in history. At the behest of the UK’s MI-6 and a CIA operative (Rachel Brosnahan), he forms a covert, dangerous partnership with Soviet officer Oleg Penkovsky (Merab Ninidze) in an effort to provide crucial intelligence needed to prevent a nuclear confrontation and defuse the Cuban Missile Crisis.

★★★★ "terse, tense thriller ...compelling" - Saturday Evening Post

★★★/4 "smart, stylish... solid yet fun spy thriller" - Washington Post

★★★/4 "riveting" - San Francisco Chronicle

"Benedict Cumberbatch heats up solid Cold War drama" "...the story at its centre is such a fascinating one" - Guardian

"A solid spy drama about ordinary people caught up in Cold War espionage." - Hollywood Reporter

"It's one of the most remarkable espionage stories of the 20th century" - Vulture
