(1997) Solid thriller in which an upright New York policeman (Harrison Ford) welcomes an Irish immigrant (Brad Pitt) into his home, unaware the young man is an IRA agent whose attempt to buy stinger missiles inadvertently enmeshes the cop, his family, and his police partner (Ruben Blades) in a web of violence. Director Alan J. Pakula focuses on the complex moral dilemmas facing the cop and the IRA man while skillfully building the suspense in the gripping narrative. Intermittent violence, recurring rough language and some profanity. A-III -- adults. (R -- restricted. Showtime (cable)
