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.
