Film Preview: The Good German

The Good German, based on the novel of the same name by Joseph Kanon, takes place in post-WWII Berlin, where U.S. Army war correspondent Jake Geismar (George Clooney) becomes embroiled with Lena Brandt (Cate Blanchett), a former lover whose missing husband is the object of a manhunt by both the American and Russian armies.

Intrigue mounts as Jake tries to uncover the secrets Lena may be hiding in her desperation to get herself and her husband out of Berlin. Tully (Tobey Maguire), a soldier in the American army motor pool assigned to drive Jake around Berlin, has black market connections that may be Lena’s way out — or lead them all into even darker territory.

Armed with a script by Oscar and Edgar Nominee Paul Attanasio (Donnie Brassco, Sum of All Fears), Oscar winner Steven Solderbergh directs Clooney for a fifth time.
