Description

John Schlesinger directs this American spy thriller starring Timothy Hutton and Sean Penn. In 1977, civilian defence contractor Christopher Boyce (Hutton) becomes disillusioned with the government following the Vietnam war and America's meddling in the internal affairs of Australia. Taking advantage of the lax security at his place of work, Boyce steals some sensitive documents and sells them to the Soviet Union, using his drug dealing friend Daulton Lee (Penn) as a courier. However, the duo's involvement with the KGB does not go unnoticed by the CIA, who determine to bring them to justice.

Synopsis
Based on an actual incident, THE FALCON AND THE SNOWMAN is a tale of espionage about two upper-middle class kids who, in 1977, became spies for the Soviet Union. Disillusioned with the American government, a drop-out seminary student, Christopher Boyce (Timothy Hutton), begins stealing classified information from his workplace. With the help of his boyhood friend, strung-out cocaine addict Daulton Lee (Sean Penn), Boyce begins selling government secrets to the Soviets, with disastrous results.
