The Good Shepherd follows a young man named Edward Wilson (Matt Damon), and his ascent into the world of counterintelligence.  It began during his days at Yale as a recruit in the secretive Skull and Bones society, where Wilson was amongst some of the nation's most influential future leaders. 

Wilson was approached by the FBI soon afterward, and helped the agency expose a homosexual literature professor suspected of being a Nazi sympathizer.  While the latter claim turned out to be false, the incident proved Edward's willingness to betray those close to him for the sake of government interests.   

The Good Shepherd was nominated for an Oscar; it earned $99 million at the box office, easily recuperating its $85 million budget.
