In Brad Anderson directed Beirut, Jon Hamm is a U.S. diplomat who flees Lebanon in 1972 after a tragic incident at his home.
Ten years pass and he’s called back to war-torn Beirut by CIA operatives to negotiate for the life of a friend he left behind.
Rosamund Pike and Shea Whigham also star…
I want to see this so I can have another film to add to my list of favourite Hamm performances. That is of course besides Mad Men and Friends With Kids (2011).
This character seems to be complex enough to make this movie rather interesting. Plus, I also haven’t watched Baby Driver (2017) yet so there’s still that. Not quite sure how ‘complex’ Hamm’s character there is likely to be though.
