Eye of the Needle 1981
In 1944, when the Allies were preparing to invade France, they tried to keep the Nazis guessing as to where they would invade. Would it be in Normandy, with its wide open beaches, or would it be at Calais, the closest city to England?

Donald Sutherland plays that Nazi spy. His name is Faber, but his Code Name is The Needle. He obtains photographs of the fake army barracks and phony planes. He knows that the Army in the East is fake and therefore that the invasion will most likely take place in Normandy. Unfortunately for him, British intelligence is hot on his heels and he is forced to run for his life to Storm Island off of the coast of Scotland.

Living on the island is a married couple, their son and an old man. The husband is confined to a wheelchair and is excessively bitter about it. The wife, Lucy, is lonely and longs for physical contact. A contact Faber is only too happy to reciprocate while he waits for the submarine....
