Arlington Road (1999) (C)
"Awesome performances with a brainy plot."
Geri Richter Campell, JANE.
A gripping contemporary thriller about the terrible truths that can hide behind everyday appearances, Arlington Road is an intense, edge-of-your-seat journey that reveals just how little we know about the world around us.
Widowed when his FBI agent wife is killed by a right wing group, college professor Michael Faraday (Jeff Bridges) becomes obsessed with the culture of these groups - especially when his new neighbors, the all-American Oliver and Cheryl Lang (Tim Robbins and Joan Cusack), start acting suspiciously.
With each twist, the mystery deepens and the question looms - is Faraday just consumed by fear and driven by paranoia, or has a lethal conspiracy been born on Arlington Road? -- (C) Screen Gems/Lakeshore Entertainment, 1999, USA.
Starring Jeff Bridges, Tim Robbins, Joan Cusack, Hope Davis, Robert Gossett.
Directed by Mark Pellington.
