Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Mar 4th at 4:45 PM for Breach at the AMC Loews Georgetown 14 . Look for Schmitty wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Eric O’Neill (Ryan Phillippe) has just landed a dream job as a full-fledged FBI agent and has been handpicked to work under renowned operative Robert Hanssen (Chris Cooper) within a new division created to protect all classified FBI intelligence. In actuality, he is working under Special Agent Kate Burroughs (Laura Linney) and Special Agent Dan Plesac (Dennis Haysbert), who have been investigating Hanssen as a potential mole for the Soviet Union. Their case is of grave importance given the type of information he has access to. O’Neill must gain his new mentor’s trust in hopes that the traitor will eventually expose himself. Soon, O’Neill is risking his life as well as the life of his family as he and Hanssen become tangled in a dangerous game that pits them against one another.
