4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite believable, 11 Mar 2010
This review is from: Arlington Road [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
Michael Faraday (Jeff Bridges) lectures on terrorism. When he saves the life of Oliver Lang's (Tim Robbins) child, a friendship is formed between the two men. They start to see each other socially and their children hang out with each other. Is all as it seems....?

It's a good film but it has a few dodgy bits that suspend belief, eg, Brooke's (Hope Davis) inability to understand the bleeding obvious when Bridges is shoving loads of proof in her face. I was also confused as to the role of Cheryl (Joan Cusack) - innocent or evil? The film has a different outcome to what you would expect which would shock the viewer more if we could care about Jeff Bridges. Tim Robbins has a far more interesting role and he steals the acting honours. Special mention to Joan Cusack for being scarily mad, I think!
