Rendition Movie Synopsis & Plot

Reese Witherspoon, Jake Gyllenhaal, Meryl Streep, Peter Sarsgaard and Alan Arkin star in "Rendition," a thriller from director Gavin Hood ("Tsotsi"). Witherspoon stars as the American wife of an Egyptian-born chemical engineer who disappears on a flight from South Africa to Washington. The woman desperately tries to track her husband down, while a CIA analyst (Gyllenhaal) at a secret detention facility outside the U.S. is forced to question his assignment as he becomes party to the man's unorthodox interrogation.

MOVIE REVIEW

Of all of the Middle Eastern-themed movies that were released in the second half of 2007, Rendition looked the least interesting to me. The movie looked glossy and stuffed with good-but-not-commanding actors for the sake of selling tickets. The film received so-so reviews, and even when it was released on DVD, I didn't drive to the video store at 9 a.m. to rent me a copy.
