Rating: 3/4 -- There is a kind of movie sequence which Alfred Hitchcock always did well, and which most later directors have chosen not to do at all. Full Review
...Scenes of treesy New York streets cluttered with roadsters and clean, sleek, moderne-style subway cars beautifully harken back to the times of the city in its heyday...
In 1951, Emily Crane (Kelly McGillis), a Life magazine photography editor, is fired from her job for refusing to name names in a House Un-American Activities Committtee hearing. Undaunted by the extreme climate of McCarthyism and repression, Emily continues to associate with her liberal friends and takes a new job as a caretaker and reader for Miss Venable (Jessica Tandy), an elderly woman in her neighborhood. One day while working for Miss Venable, Emily overhears a suspicious conversation taking place in the house next door. She begins to suspect that she has stumbled upon a conspiracy to smuggle Nazi war criminals into the United States using the identities of dead Jews--a siniser plot that is being orchestrated by Selwan (Mandy Patinkin), a highly respected public official who led the investigation against her. Unfortunately, because Emily has been labeled a subversive and a communist, no one believes her, except for FBI agent Cochran (Jeff Daniels)--the love-struck agent assigned to follow her--and the conspirators themselves. As Emily and Agent Cochran hunt for the truth, they become entangled in a web of murder and intrigue that threatens their lives. Peter Yates's enchanting period thriller ends with a grand Hitchcockian finale in New York's Grand Central Station.
- The film was completed in late 1986 but not released to theaters until March 1988.
- Screenwriter Walter Bernstein was blacklisted in the 1950s by the House Un-American Activities Committee.
- The used bookstore where Emily meets the young translator is New York's famous Strand bookstore.
