Synopsis


Rendition
The director of the Academy Award-winning 2006 crime drama Tsotsi returns to the helm with this tale of a Middle East CIA operative who begins to have doubts about his latest assignment after witnessing the interrogation of a suspected suicide bomber by secret police. When Egyptian-born chemical engineer Anwar El-Ibrahimi (Omar Metwally) mysteriously vanishes on a routine flight from South Africa to Washington, his wife, Isabella (Reese Witherspoon), embarks on a frantic international search for her missing husband. At the same time, a CIA analyst (Jake Gyllenhaal) arrives at a clandestine detention facility outside of United States. As the interrogation of El-Ibrahimi gets under way, the CIA analyst is profoundly shaken by the unorthodox methods used by the man's captors, and quickly begins to reevaluate his assignment. Peter Sarsgaard, Meryl Streep, and Alan Arkin co-star in this topical political thriller penned by Kelley Sane and produced by Steve Golin. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Incredible Movie

    Yes, the fact that it deals with a touchy subject I am sure will facilitate some hot debate. Some people will love this movie, some people will hate this movie. The bottom line is as long as you are open to the subject matter, it forces you to think about what is going on in the world. This is exactly what the movie wants you to do. Outside of the subject matter, it is a thrilling movie that will have you glued to the screen. This movie was very well done. The acting is incredible and the characters stories are not just black and white. I would recommend watching this movie.

    Suprise Hit

    About thirty minutes into this movie I was bored and wanted to turn it off, but I'm glad I didn't. It is slow to develop, but eventually will have you on the edge of your seat. If you like movies that make you think, then this is right up your alley. The ending was outstanding and this was easily the best movie I've seen all year, yes it is ten times better than No Country For Old Men. A must buy, just don't think this is the kind of movie you can watch and read the newspaper at the same time, you have to pay attention, but you'll be glad that you did.

    We enjoyed the movie, but not my favorite. Normally we like to rent a movie before we purchase., but the price was right so we bought it. Interesting to watch.

    This is an excellent, underrated effort from director Gavin Hood, with a customarily intense performance from Jake Gyllenhaal.
