THE FALCON AND THE SNOWMAN

The Falcon and the Snowman is a 1985 American spy drama film directed by John Schlesinger. It is loosely based on a true story about two young American men, Christopher Boyce (Timothy Hutton) and Andrew Daulton Lee (Sean Penn), who sold U.S. security secrets to the Soviet Union. The film is based on the 1979 book The Falcon and the Snowman: A True Story of Friendship and Espionage by Robert Lindsey, and features the song “This Is Not America”, written and performed by David Bowie and the Pat Metheny Group.
