In suburban Reston, Virginia, George Washington University American History professor Michael Faraday is still mourning the death of his wife, FBI agent Leah Faraday, after three years. His inside knowledge of the agency colors what he teaches in his classes. Although on good terms with Leah's ex-partner, Whit Carver, and the agency in general, Michael wants the agency at least to acknowledge their responsibility in her death in the line of duty. Michael is moving on with his personal life, he being in a serious relationship with his former teaching assistant Brooke Wolfe. Although he likes Brooke, Michael and Leah's nine year old son, Grant Faraday, may not yet be quite ready for Brooke to be a permanent part of their lives. It is only in helping adolescent Brady Lang who he sees in medical distress that Michael meets his new neighbors, Oliver and Cheryl Lang, Brady's parents. In the process, Michael and Brooke becomes friends with the Langs, as Grant and Brady become friends. ...Written by
The main character in the movie Red Nightmare (1962) lives at Arlington Road. This anti-communist short movie is about Soviets infiltrating America. Everybody seems to be plotting against the main character. See more »
Towards the end when someone says 'Stand-by' into the walkie-talkie, her mouth doesn't match the words she says. See more »
The R-rated version is missing the graphic gore that was in the original shooting script of the film. The UNCUT bootleg of the workprint version is on some bootlegger's websites and has ALL the graphic gore cut to avoid the "X" rating. See more »
I have to say, that I heard a lot about this movie. People said that it had one of the best plot twists ever. Well, only proves the fact that may people haven't seen too many movies or only very bad ones (go see "witness of the prosecution" to see a real plot twist)...
I have to admit, the first 30 minutes or so are okay. However, the lead by Bridges is a major letdown. Hey, I did not care for him for one second. Why? Because all about him hinted to the "twist". Come on guy. This character has the "secret" of the ending all written over him - in capital letters.
If anyone has any doubt about how the movie will end after the lecture he gives to his students - sorry, it's just too plain obvious.
