Special preview of The Interpreter + Q+A with Sydney Pollack - 12 April

Popcorn Taxi presents a special preview of The Interpreter + Q&A with acclaimed director/ producer Sydney Pollack

"Popcorn Taxi is proud to announce a special preview of the outstanding new thriller THE INTERPRETER starring NICOLE KIDMAN and SEAN PENN. After the screening join Academy Award winning director SYDNEY POLLACK for an exclusive interview and audience Q&A (live via phone direct from Berlin), with ABC Radio National's JULIE RIGG.

THE INTERPRETER is set against the high stakes background of geo-politics and counter-terrorism in the tension filled atmosphere of the United Nations. The film has NICOLE KIDMAN as an interpreter unwittingly caught up in an assassination plot. SEAN PENN is a government agent assigned to protect her - but is she telling all she knows?

For director POLLACK whose credits include the Oscar winning OUT OF AFRICA (1985) and TOOTSIE (1982), the film is a welcome return to a genre he has excelled in with films like ABSENCE OF MALICE (1981), THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR (1975) and THE FIRM (1993). THE INTERPRETER is the first movie ever to be allowed to shoot inside the UN itself. It features a fast-paced, politically sophisticated screenplay that daringly provokes controversial questions about current US foreign policy. It's also a ripping yarn and a touching human story."
