The Interpreter 2005

Nicole Kidman stars as African-born U.N. interpreter Silvia Broome, who inadvertently overhears a death threat against an African head of state scheduled to address the United Nation's General Assembly. Realizing she's become a target of the assassins as well, Silvia's desperate to thwart the plot ... if only she can survive long enough to get someone to believe her. Sean Penn is Tobin Keller, the federal agent charged with protecting the interpreter, who nonetheless suspects she may not be telling the whole truth. Silvia and Tobin, by nature, see life from different points of view: one, a U.N. interpreter, believes in the power and sanctity of words; the other, a Secret Service agent, believes in reading people based on their behavior, no matter what is said.

The Interpreter Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/5/2007)

Talk about hot button issues of the moment. This film packs in African genocide, American terrorist fears and the validity of the United Nations itself into one film. One almost excellent film. The cast is a terrific choice: Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn, emoting at their very best (is it just me, or does...

The Interpreter Movie Review by AJ (5/5/2006)

Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn are two of my least favorite actors working today. Kidman is always bland, and Penn is always maddeningly pretentious and overbearing. However, lately, I've been seeing a string of movies with surprisingly solid performances from the latter, and I was beginning to consider actually kind of...

The Interpreter Movie Review by Lance (6/18/2005)

Sydney Pollack's "The Interpreter". Pollack isn't treading any new ground with this thriller. Remember this is the guy that made "The Firm", "Absence of Malice" and "Three Days of The Condor" (as well as a couple of episodes of the old Alfred Hitchcock TV show). So it is a technically proficient thriller, and Nicole Kidman...

The Interpreter Movie Review by Matthew (4/25/2005)

Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn are both great. Kidman plays Broome, a woman who grew up in the small country of Mobatu and then lived in a number of European countries, making her a perfect candidate for a UN interpreter. At one point, Keller says ‘she is the UN’ referring to her training and upbringing. Throughout the story,...
