The Interpreter

We went to the local mega-screen theater this afternoon and saw "The Interpreter".  It was a story about an African leader who sets up a phony assassination attempt in order to appear sympathetic.  In reality he is a cruel man who will ultimately be punished for his crimes against humanity.

The U.N. interpreter (Nicole Kidman) overhears part of the plot and alerts the authorities (Sean Penn) that the leader is about to be assassinated.

I'd give this one a C+.  The acting is pretty good, but the story is a little too predictable.
