the interpreter

Last night, Brian and I caught this one while drinking margaritas (of course). Sean Penn and Nicole Kidman starred in the movie, so you know it had to be good. And good it was--full of political intrigue and whatnot. The movie really held my interest throughout. It was a story about an interpreter (Kidman) at the U.N. who overhears an assassination plot for an African leader who will be speaking at the U.N. It took a lot of twists and turns and we find out that Kidman has ties to the country in question, which further complicates the plot. Penn played a member of the Secret Service who was assigned to the case. His acting is always good, and this movie was no exception, but his part wasn't all that interesting. Still, a pretty good movie.
