For a quick escape, watch Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) featuring Chris Pine (Captain Kirk in the new Star Trek) as the lead character, Keira Knightley as the love interest, Kevin Costner as the fatherly mentor, and Kenneth Branagh as a bad guy named Viktor. Enjoy a few glimpses of Moscow (although much of the film was filmed in England) and of dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov, who defected from the Soviet Union in the 1970s.
