Bridge of Spies  
Written by the Coen brothers, directed by Speilberg, starring Tom Hanks.  They'd have to actively try to fuck up that movie.  Which they don't.  They maybe push a little too hard on the This Scene is Important bits, but nothing that really detracts.  The titular spy exchange only takes up the second half, with the first being the trial of the Russian agent.  With Hanks as the Lawful Good Lawyer vs. the System that Just Wants to Hang a Spy Because the Mob is Scared.  I especially liked the little scene of school children terrorfied to tears by the nucleur war filmstrip.  Also while their are other actors in this, the movie is pretty much owned by Hanks and Mark Rylance as Rudolf Abel
