One life to love

Two good movies

Last week we saw 2 good movies back to back.

Road to Perdition – Starring Tom Hanks, Paul Newman, Daniel Craig etc.

A nice movie and if I put it in my cousins words “A movie with many layers”. It was an interesting movie which showed the emotions of a father protecting his son from entering into the mafia world. A story narrated by a son,about his life experiences and about his relation with his father.

Rendition – Starring Meryl Streep, Omar Metwally, Reese Witherspoon, Jake Gyllenhaal etc.

A good movie. Rendition is a movie based on the extraordinary rendition by CIA based on which a suspect is deported to a secret detention facility outside US in order to extract information. After the terrorist attack on the twin towers it is believed that there has been many similar cases.

This movie is well taken intertwining scenes from two time spans… and we come to know of this only in the end of the movie. There are many characters around which the story revolves – the plight of a pregnant women fighting to get information about his missing Egyptian husband who was on the flight back home, though all the information has been erased.A friend who is trying his best to find information of his missing friend. A father who is searching for his missing daughter. A US official who is forced to be part of the torture procedures. A terrorist who fights for the cause he believes in. A girl who is caught between her terrorist boy friend and her strict father. A senior US official who signs the proceedings of the deportation and torture.
