Plot hole: Toward the end of the movie, it is revealed that Silvia spent the night in the secure room where the Matabo President was taken after the assassination attempt so that she could be alone with him and threaten to kill him. With the U.N. and Secret Service on alert for an assassination attempt, wouldn't they have swept the secure room right before the Matabo President arrived that day? In addition, Silvia would have had to use her access card to get in that area of the building, so there would be a record of her being in the building but not at her station. Wouldn't that raise some suspicion long before Tobin figures it out?
The Interpreter is a tense and fast-paced thriller involving the U.N., an assassination plot, political manipulations and ethnic cleansing. Nicole Kidman stars as a gifted translator who gets stuck in the middle of the growing danger, while Sean Penn plays a Secret Service Agent determined to figure out whether the Translator is innocent or guilty of some complicity in the plot, alternately trying to protect and potentially arrest her. If you like international politics, police dramas, and films that seem taken from news headlines, this might be to your liking.
