Summary: Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn deliver superb performances in this gripping thriller about a United Nations interpreter who winds up in the midst of an assassination plot. Directed by Sydney Pollack, the film was the first to ever receive permission to shoot at the U.N. in New York City. Kidman stars as Silvia Broome, an interpreter from Matobo, South Africa, who overhears a death threat against her homeland's dictator Dr. Zuwanie as he prepares to address the U.N. assembly. Enter Secret Service agent Keller (Sean Penn) who-in spite of his suspicion that Silvia is hiding something-must rely on the the ever-evasive woman whose dark past in Matobo is inexorably linked to the explosive present. Catherine Keener co-stars. Directed by Sydney Pollack; screenplay by Charles Randolph, Scott Frank, Steven Zaillian; story by Martin Stellman, Brian Ward. (PG13) (AL,V)
