Academy Award® winners Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn star in the action-packed thriller, The Interpreter. In one of the hidden corridors of power at United Nations headquarters, translator Silvia Broome (Kidman) overhears a potentially explosive secret about a planned assassination attempt. But when federal agent Tobin Keller (Penn) investigates her claim and digs deeper into Silvia's dangerous past, he begins to question whether she is a victim - or a suspect. From Oscar®-winning director Sydney Pollack comes the riveting, edge-of-your-seat story of international intrigue that Ebert & Roeper give "Two thumbs up!"

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: While it pains me to beat up on Pollack, who, in addition to being a consistently wonderful actor, is at least attempting to make movies the old-fashioned way, it pains me more to actually sit through his movies.
Rotten: Penn is terrific in his low-key doggedness.
Fresh: It's hard to know what is more impressive, the artistry of The Interpreter or the sheer craft of it.
Fresh: An intelligent, old-fashioned nail-biter.
What a Waste of Time
Plot: horrible. Acting: Sean Penn cannot act. Don't waste your time.
Best Movie Ever!!
I love this movie! Ever since I saw it I have always thought of how cool it would be to be an interpreter. Nicole Kidman is amazing in this movie and so is Sean Penn. The movie is so dramatic and has that whole mystery/ thriller thing going on for it. I would totally recommend this movie and once you see you'll love it just as much as I do!
This movie was absolutely amazing. It kept me on the edge of my seat and paying attention the whole time. Both Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn were fabulous, and VERY believable as characters. Screw the renting, I say, BUY IT!
