Directed by Kenneth Branagh, starring Chris Pine, Keira Knightley, Kevin Costner and Kenneth Branagh. The story follows Jack Ryan from 9/11, through his tour of duty in Afghanistan, which scarred him forever, and into his early days in the Financial Intelligence Unit of the modern CIA where he becomes an analyst, under the guardianship of his handler, Harper. When Ryan believes he’s uncovered a Russian plot to destroy the United States economy, he goes from being an analyst to becoming a spy and must fight to save his own life and those of countless others, while also trying to protect the thing that’s more important to him than anything, his relationship with his wife Cathy.
