Brad Pitt plays Max Vatan and Marion Cotillard plays Marianne Beausejour in Allied from Paramount Pictures.


Max (Brad Pitt), a British intelligence officer, and Marianne (Marion Cotillard), a resistance fighter, meet on assignment together in Morocco. They fall in love, and upon his return to Britain, and Marianne’s clearance to move to England, marry. All is well until one day, Max is called into HQ to hear news that superior officers believe Marianne is a German spy. I thought the film to be satisfying entertainment, but it was not great. The story kind of wanders and becomes a bit unbelievable in places, and there is not much deep exploration of the characters. However, I did find it modestly enjoyable, and Marion Cotillard is, as always, in great form in her role. Thumbs up from me for a movie that I was glad I saw but falls well short of a wartime love story; this is one of those movies that could wait until Netflix or other rental.
