I can't believe people found out about me and Jake.

Position Staff In Brief
96/214 Max Braden I think I was almost more offended by the really lousy investigation skills that led to the snatch in this plot.

Digg Button  
Anwar El-Ibrahimi (Omar Metwalley) is an Egyptian-born man who is suspected of terrorism. When he disappears while on a flight from South Africa to Washington, D.C., his American wife (Reese Witherspoon) makes her way to Washington to try to uncover the reasons behind his disappearance.

As she is searching for answers, CIA analyst Doug Freeman (Jake Gyllenhaal) is stationed at a detention facility somewhere outside the United States. When he sees the unorthodox interrogation of El-Ibrahimi, he questions his assignment and becomes caught up in the struggle to secure the man's release.

Rendition is directed by Gavin Hood, who previously attained recognition for helming the Academy Award-winning Tsotsi. This is his first effort at a major motion picture release, and it should be fascinating to see its reception. It's a movie that is packed with talent, including Academy Award winners Witherspoon, Meryl Streep and Alan Arkin as well as recent Oscar nominee Gyllenhaal. It's likely to be positioned as an awards contender as it nears release. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
