The Interpreter

Sydney Pollack (Out of Africa, Tootsie, The Way We Were) comes back to the cinema after five years or so with this Hitchcockian political thriller starring Nicole Kidman as a U.N. interpreter who overhears an assassination plot. Sean Penn plays the skeptical FBI agent assigned to protect her. It's a well-polished affair, but--like most thrillers--it's pretty damn preposterous. Ignore the gap-filled script and enjoy the solid performances and assured direction. 135 minutes PG-13.
