“The Recruit centers around Owen Hendricks (Noah Centineo), a young CIA lawyer whose first week on the job turns upside down when he discovers a threatening letter by former asset Max Meladze (Laura Haddock), who plans to expose the agency unless they exonerate her of a serious crime.
“Owen quickly becomes entangled in a dangerous and often absurd world of power politics and mischievous players, as he travels the world in hopes of completing his assignment and making a mark at the CIA.”
Centineo is known for starring in all three films of the popular Netflix rom-com franchise ‘To All the Boys’.
Owen Hendricks is a new recruit, but little does he know that he is about to be thrown headfirst into a battle between the CIA and their former asset.
