Berlin, 1945. Everyone in Berlin has a secret. Everyone is working an angle to get what they need: money, power, survival . . . or just a way out.
Academy Award®-winning filmmakers Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) and George Clooney (Syriana, Good Night, and Good Luck.) reteam for the silver screen treatment of Joseph Kanon's acclaimed novel. Amidst the ruins of post-World War II Berlin, U.S. Army war correspondent Jake Geismer (Clooney) becomes embroiled with Lena Brandt (Academy Award® winner Cate Blanchett -- The Aviator), a former lover whose missing husband is the object of a manhunt by both the American and Russian armies. Intrigue mounts as Jake tries to uncover the secrets Lena may be hiding in her desperation to get herself and her husband out of Berlin. Tobey Maguire (Spider-Man films) also stars in this taut thriller as a soldier with black market connections who may be Lena's way out -- or her entry into even darker territory.
