The interpreter - Nicole Kidman, Sean Penn, Jesper Christensen, Sydney Pollack

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

Nicole Kidman stars as African-born United Nations interpreter Silvia Broome, who inadvertently overhears a death threat against an African head of state scheduled to address the United Nation's General Assembly. Realising 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 UN interpreter, believes in the power and sanctity of words; the other, a Secret Service agent, believes in reading people based on their behaviour, no matter what is said.

In the right hallway, at the right time, all it takes is a whisper to tip the balance of power.
