The Good Shepherd

"The untold story of the most powerful covert agency in the world."

Edward Wilson, the only witness to his father's suicide and member of the Skull and Bones Society while a student at Yale, is a morally upright young man who values honor and discretion, qualities that help him to be recruited for a career in the newly founded OSS. His dedication to his work does not come without a price though, leading him to sacrifice his ideals and eventually his family.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): In the first of the Berlin scenes, set in 1945, in the background are two Soviet soldiers holding SKS rifles which were not adopted by the Soviet Army until 1949.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): In the TELEX scene, the word "know" is incorrectly spelled "KONW".
  • Michael Gambon's character, Dr. Fredricks, is partly inspired by Alan Turing, a British mathematician who helped to crack the German "Enigma" code during World War II, and who is considered one of the founders of modern computer science. In 1952, Turing was expelled from the British secret service after being prosecuted for his homosexual affairs. In 1954, he died after eating a cyanide-laced apple, but it is unknown if he was murdered or committed suicide.
  • William Hurt's character, Phillip Allen, is partly based on Allen Dulles, OSS operative and later CIA director during the Bay of Pigs invasion. He left the CIA shortly afterward, though not for any reason of financial impropriety.
