American Made

Drugs, planes and the CIA; sounds like the dulcet tones of 1970s America.

Barry Seal (Tom Cruise) leaves his comfortable TWA pilot life for a job with a little more spontaneity as he is recruited by the CIA to gather photographic evidence of the impending communist threat in central America. However, upon stopping for a refuel, Barry is offered a life-changing amount of money to begin working for the Medellin Cartel.

Based on a real story, this film investigates the political minefield of 1970s America, all whilst providing tear-jerking drama and intoxicating entertainment in the form of shock-worthy explosions and plot twists to puzzle even the greatest of minds.

Tom Cruise tunes into his character with his same intangible grinning enthusiasm as always, keeping the film lighthearted throughout, even when death seems imminent.
