The Interpreter was quite a good thriller, with enough plot to keep it engaging the whole way through. (Though occasionally it was a bit predictable – did anyone really have any doubts about what Nicole Kidman’s character was planning when she said she was “going home”?)
The only thing that really lifted it out of the ordinary was Sean Penn’s strong performance as a bereaved husband. And I thought the relationship between the two main characters was well done – a bit more subtle than the standard romantic subplot.
