Film Review: BEIRUT

Film Review: BEIRUT

WDCB's Gary Zidek reviews BEIRUT, a throwback geo-political thriller set in 1982 Lebanon.  Starring Jon Hamm and Rosamund Pike, the film was originally written by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Tony Gilroy in 1991. It took a while, but better late than never.

It's hard not to see traces of Mad Men's Don Draper, but Hamm delivers a standout performance as Mason Skiles in BEIRUT.
