The truth needs
Direct: Sidney Pollack
Starring: Nicole Kidman, Sean Penn
events begin when African-born U.N. translator Silvia Broome
(Kidman) alleges that she has overheard a death threat against
an African head of state, spoken in a rare dialect few people
other than Silvia can understand. With the words "The
Teacher will never leave this room alive," in an instant,
Silvia's life is turned upside down as she becomes a hunted
target of the killers. Placed under the protection of federal
agent Tobin Keller (Penn), Silvia's world only grows more
nightmarish. As Keller digs deeper into his eyewitnesses'
past and her secretive world of global connections, the more
suspicious he becomes that she herself might be involved in
the conspiracy. With every step of the way, he finds more
reasons to mistrust her. Is Sylvia a victim? A suspect? Or
something else entirely? And can Tobin, coping with his own
personal heartache, keep her safe?

in the '30s, times are dangerous and gangs rule the streets.
The most notorious of these, the Axes, strike fear into the
hearts of honest citizens and inspire admiration in one young
wannabe. One day, in a slum on the outskirts of town, he wreaks
havoc when he recklessly poses as an Axe member and causes
a veritable riot between the real gang members and the denizens
of a housing project. Everyone, as it just so happens, seems
to be strangely well versed in the art of kung fu.
