ROBERT de Niro virtually gives a history lesson on the development of the CIA from its early days of operations during the Second World War.

He plays a veteran agent who begins his career believing in the idealism of the service and the love of his country, but gradually becomes suspicious of his whole role.

This is not the romantic side of spying and espionage, but a down-to-earth telling of the darker sides of the business.

Matt Damon plays a de Niro younger version: as eager, optimistic student at Yale who becomes a prime recruit for the secret society.
