Rendition 2007


description written by member Zara:

Gavin Hood, whose "Tsotsi" became the first film from the former Apartheid state to win an Academy Award, will make his Hollywood debut directing first-time screenwriter Kelley Sane's multi-layered story centering on a CIA analyst based in Cairo who finds his world spinning out of control after he witnesses the interrogation of a foreign national by the Egyptian secret police. Witherspoon has been tapped to play Isabella El-Ibrahim, the pregnant American wife of an Egyptian-born chemical engineer whose family emigrated to the States in the mid 1980s, who is shipped off to a third world country for interrogation after he is deemed a political prisoner in our post-9/11 world.

Rendition Movie Review by Jeremy (6/28/2010)

Spoiler Alert,

Okay, this goes out to anyone who may want information from me in the future. Tie me to a chair, put a stick of Spree just out of my reach, and make me watch this movie. "What if someone you loved just disappeared?" Does this line only apply to this movie, or does it apply to anybody, say the victims of...

Rendition Movie Review by Chris (1/24/2009)

'Rendition' is a very tough film to understand for about the first 20 minutes or so, our introduction to characters is very quick and the plot is utterly confusing.

Rendition Movie Review by Tim (2/21/2008)

Peter Sarsgaard usually gets on my nerves but I started to like him in this...
