Agent of Influence (2002) Christopher Plummer
This story of espionage and counter-espionage is based on 'true' events, and the novel by Ian Adams. Suspicious circumstances surrounded the mysterious death of a Canadian diplomat. At the height of The Cold War in October 1964, John Watkins, Canada's former ambassador to Moscow and a close friend of Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson, is kidnapped and held in a hotel for questioning by the RCMP at the urging of the CIA. Several days into the interrogation he died. The official obituary claimed that he suffered a heart attack in the company of friends during a farewell supper celebrating his illustrious career.
Starring: Christopher Plummer, Marina Orsini, Shaun Johnston, Ted Whittall
Viewer Quote: "What an interesting, yet disturbing story of the CIA railroading of a Canadian Ambassador to USSR. Christopher Plummer is awesome as the Canadian diplomat who's chosen to take a fall and possibly implicate Prime Minister Pearson by the CIA during the middle of the cold war. This is a great movie with a nice twist at the end."
