Rating:
R

The Russia House is a Cold War-themed 90's film starring Sean Connery and Michelle Pfeiffer. The film was one of the only American movies shot in the Soviet Union during its socialist state. Bartholomew "Barley" Scott Blair (Sean Connery) works for a first-class publishing house in England. He travels to Moscow on business where he attends a Russian book conference. As he sits and listens attentively, three manuscripts containing top-secret information regarding Russian missiles fall into his lap. It is only a matter of moments before the CIA is barking down his throat, asking him to translate the books' words and meanings. Barley is reluctant to help at first, but when he sets eyes on the editor of the works, a Russian woman named Katya (Michelle Pfeiffer), he agrees. The Russia House is based on a novel of the same title by author John le Carre. The book was adopted to film by Tom Stoppard. Fre Schepisi directs.
