(2005) Glossy, reasonably suspenseful tale about a Secret Service agent (Sean Penn) who investigates the claim that an African-born interpreter at the United Nations (Nicole Kidman) has overheard a plot against an African dignitary accused of genocide, and though the agent begins to suspect the interpreter may in fact be part of the plot, he finds himself falling in love with her. Director Sydney Pollack’s international political thriller is much too complex — not to mention improbable — for its own good, and even with intelligent performances and sharp U.N. location shooting, this is several notches below The Man Who Knew Too Much and other similarly themed films. Some profanity and crude language, several instances of brief but strong violence, thematic suicide material, a scantily clad lap dancer, a glimpse of massacred bodies. (A-III — adults) (PG-13 — parents strongly cautioned) Showtime (cable)
