The Interpreter

While the African leader is giving his speech to the General Assembly, an assassin in an overhead booth attempts to shoot him. Keller and the other agents spot him, and he is shot dead before firing his weapon. However, the assassination plot was phony and planned by the corrupt African leader and his allies to garner world sympathy and win political support. The hired 'assassin' was dying of AIDS and was only doing this to get money for his family. Just before all this is revealed, the African leader was rushed to a safe room and locked inside alone. Silvia, who has been hiding inside the room, grabs his gun and wants to kill him. His political regime was responsible for the death of her parents, sister, and brother. Agent Keller gets into the room and persuades Silvia not to shoot the leader, and she surrenders. Afterwards, Silvia is not charged with any crime, but she is deported to Africa.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn are talking for the first time in the lounge area, Nicole's bangs go from across her eye to swept aside from shot to shot.
