Stars: Tom Cruise, Sarah Wright, Domhnall Gleeson

Tom Cruise reunites with his Edge of Tomorrow director, Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith), in this international escapade based on the outrageous (and real) exploits of a hustler and pilot unexpectedly recruited by the CIA to run one of the biggest covert operations in U.S. history. Based on a true story.
Lured by adventure and bucket loads of cash, a gutsy TWA pilot takes on flight operations for both the CIA and a Columbian drug cartel.
In this pacey action film, Tom Cruise pulls off the ultimate feat of an A List actor- he disappears in the role of Barry Seale, ace pilot, lover of risk, dedicated husband and father, and player of games with some pretty shady people. It’s a fun role, but deadly serious, and Cruise gets the tone just right.
The director Doug Liman weaves his magic to recreate the effect of being there- in the naive eighties, in the middle of all the fun of flying and unexpected opportunity, with the cautionary tale of Barry Seal a window into the world of corruption we only only saw glimpses of at the time.

Η νέα συνεργασία των Νταγκ Λίμαν και Τομ Κρουζ (μετά τη συνεργασία τους στην ταινία The Edge of Tomorrow-Στα Όρια του Αύριο) έχει τον τίτλο American Made και πραγματεύεται μια «άλλη» εκδοχή του αμερικανικού ονείρου.
Η ταινία, μια εξωφρενική περιπέτεια παρανομίας και διαπλοκής, αφηγείται την αληθινή, όσο και απίστευτη, περιπετειώδη ζωή του Μπάρι Σιλ, ενός πιλότου που, στα τέλη της δεκαετίας του ’70 και στις αρχές του ‘80, δούλευε ταυτόχρονα για τη CIA (ως πληροφοριοδότης) και τον Πάμπλο Εσκομπάρ (μεταφέροντας, λαθραία, ναρκωτικά), κερδίζοντας, ο ίδιος, απίστευτα χρήματα.
