Polish Filmmakers NYC and The Kosciuszko Foundation are pleased to present the New York premiere of spy thriller "Jack Strong," written and directed by Władysław Pasikowski.
"Jack Strong” tells the real-life story of Ryszard Kukliński, a high-ranking Polish army official who defected and became an American spy in the final stages of the Cold War. Marcin Dorociński portrays Kukliński (whose spy nickname gives the film its title) as a man of high morals and deep anguish – as well as one paying a high price for his courageous choice that led many of his compatriots to brand him a traitor. American actor Patrick Wilson plays Kukliński’s CIA connection and is joined by (his wife) Dagmara Domińczyk, a Polish-born American actress and writer, whose recent novel "Lullaby for Polish Girls" has been a bestseller both in the US and in Poland.
