The Interpreter

This movie would have been great if the lead wasn't white. The story of a South African embassy interpreter who overhears an assassination plot and is targeted herself is thrilling and somewhat interesting, but the casting of Nicole Kidman as the interpreter is such a bad choice that it brings the whole movie down. My brother said it best, "Sophie Okonedo (from Aeon Flux and Hotel Rwanda) would have been perfect for this part". A wasted effort by some talented filmmakers and actors.
