The Interpreter

Last night’s entertainment was a toss up between Be Cool and The Interpreter - I reckon we made the right decision :-)

Sean Penn and Nicole Kidman lead off in one of the more tense movies I’ve seen lately. The plot twists and turns all over the place (unfortunately not always in unexpected directions, but you can’t have everything), zipping around the threatened assassination of the unpopular president of a fictional African country.

Quite powerful in places, edge of the seat stuff, a whole lot of fun, it’s a handy reminder that both the leads are capable of acting up a storm - especially Sean Penn.

A topical take on the UN, also.

Go see.

(Nice trailer for Batman Begins, too.)
