An Early "Thumbs Up" For "Bridge of Spies"

Brendan Sharp reviews Steven Spielberg's new film Bridge of Spies for the ABA Journal here, pointing out that the protagonist, James Donovan (played by Tom Hanks), is an insurance lawyer. Writes Mr. Sharp,

After three grueling years of law school and passing the bar, lawyers often discover that the cases they’d like to tackle aren’t necessarily the ones which put enough food on the table. It’s very difficult to come across and try a case which eventually goes before the highest court in the land, much less one bearing both historical and international significance.
 But for us Walter and Wilma Mittys, it's the kind of story in which we can lose ourselves.
