The Ultimate Espionage Film...

Alicia Huberman's father has recently been convicted for treason against the US. He was helping the Nazis obtain inside information in WWII. This makes Alicia useful to the US Government: they want her as an inside agent in the Nazi regime. She has fallen in love with agent T.R. Delvin, so she agrees to endear herself to a key Nazi and obtain information. But as she gets deeper inside the regime, the danger mounts. This is truly an explosive tale, and the perfect spy movie, filled to the brim with suspense, thrills, and passion. It's not a good movie for young kids (many scenes of passionate kissing, but nothing sexual; tons of drinking and lots of mentions of alcoholism), but for preteens and up, it will make for a wonderful cinematic experience.
