Trailer Bulletin: Damon, Jolie & De Niro in "The Good Shepherd"

by | September 22, 2006 | Comments

Some movies (like "The Departed" for example) don’t even need plot synopses to get people into the multiplex. All they need are names like Matt Damon, Angelina Jolie, and Robert De Niro — like "The Good Shepherd" does. Plus it’s also got Alec Baldwin, William Hurt, Joe Pesci (remember him?), John Turturro, Billy Crudup, and a whole bunch more. Plus there’s a brand-new trailer.

Click here for the trailer.

Plot synopsis, courtesy of "The tumultuous early history of the Central Intelligence Agency is viewed through the prism of one man’s life in "The Good Shepherd," an espionage drama starring Academy Award® winners Matt Damon, Angelina Jolie and Robert De Niro and directed by Robert De Niro.

Edward Wilson (Matt Damon) understands the value of secrecy-discretion and commitment to honor have been embedded in him since childhood. As an eager, optimistic student at Yale, he is recruited to join the secret society Skull and Bones, a brotherhood and breeding ground for future world leaders. Wilson’s acute mind, spotless reputation and sincere belief in American values render him a prime candidate for a career in intelligence, and he is soon recruited to work for the OSS (the precursor to the CIA) during WWII.

As one of the covert founders of the CIA, working in the heart of an organization where duplicity is required and nothing is taken at face value, Edward’s’ idealism is steadily eroded by a growing suspicious nature, reflective of a world settling into the long paranoia of the Cold War. As his methods are adopted as standard operating procedure, Wilson develops into one of the Agency’s veteran operatives, all the while combating his KGB counterpart. However, his steely dedication to his country comes at an ever-increasing price. Not even his wife Clover (Angelina Jolie) or his beloved son can divert Wilson from a path that will force him to sacrifice everything in pursuit of this job."

The flick opens on December 22nd.
