The Recruit

This is a spy thriller movie that came out in 2003. James Clayton (played by Colin Farrell) is recruited to the CIA by Walter Burke (played by Al Pacino). Though Clayton claims he is not CIA material, he is fascinated by the CIA since he suspects his father was a CIA operative, and he shows natural aptitude for being an agent. Clayton ends up going through CIA training and meets a female trainee that he seems to have a special connection with. Throughout the training, the trainees are reminded often, "Everything is a test," and "Nothing is what it seems."

This is a suspenseful movie leaving you wondering throughout what's going on, what's real and what's a test, and who are the good guys and bad guys. I love CIA stuff, so I really enjoyed the film.
