description

The Devil's Own An intelligent suspense thriller by award-winning director Alan J. Pakula. Francis "Frankie" McGuire (Brad Pitt) is an IRA terrorist fueled by the need to avenge his father's execution, which he witnessed as a child in Belfast, Northern Ireland. McGuire comes to New York under an alias on a mission to acquire missiles for use back home in the Northern Irish fight for independence from the British. Needing a hideout, he's placed in the home of Irish-American Tom O'Meara (Harrison Ford), an ethical family man whose background as a veteran cop presents a perfect cover. However, an unexpected bond develops between the two men, and Frankie finds himself viewing O'Meara as a long-lost father figure. Yet the men's friendship is doomed by the weight of Frankie's lies, his secret mission, and the violent world that he belongs to--one that is bound to invade his protector's house. The film, revealing a complex plot and equally complex characters, was the last directorial effort from Pakula, who died in a tragic car accident. In the Line of Fire Aging secret service agent Frank Horrigan (Clint Eastwood), on duty the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, is still unable to forget his failure on that fateful day, even as he nears retirement in 1993. When Mitch Leary (John Malkovich), a psychotic man calling himself Booth, threatens to kill the current president, Horrigan is the only one who takes the threat seriously. Over time, a cat-and-mouse game develops between the potential assassin and the agent; Horrigan sees the game as a chance to redeem his earlier failure and escape a life that has fallen into alcoholism and self-pity. With his only allies his partner (Dylan McDermott), who realizes he can't handle being a secret service agent and wants to resign, and a female agent (Rene Russo) whom he alternately annoys and attracts, Horrigan takes on Leary one-on-one in a fight to save the president, his job, and his self-respect. Directed with panache and precision by Wolfgang Petersen, IN THE LINE OF FIRE is an expertly crafted thriller that features spectacular performances by Eastwood and Malkovich.
