Jennifer Lawrence finds herself in a tough spot when she can’t professionally dance ballet anymore but needs to find a way to take care of her ailing mother. She’s in Russia and her creepy uncle (Matthias Schoenaerts) gets her a job that you literally can’t say no to with their secret agency’s spy division as a ‘sparrow’: someone trained to be irresistible who uses their wiles to get spy stuff. But then, she meets her target, the CIA’s Joel Edgerton with an offer to get her out, and the Russian agency finds out that they haven’t accounted for how pissed off she is.

For this lengthy John le Carré-esque spy film we recruited only the best, men and women who knew going in what it might mean and who were willing to die for their website. Featured on the review is Chris, Miguel, Lara, and Frank.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
