A gripping contemporary thriller about the terrible truths that can hide behind everyday appearances, Arlington Road (check out the Widescreen Edition) is an intense, edge-of-your-seat journey that reveals just how little we know about the world around us.
Widowed when his FBI agent wife is killed by a right-wing group, college professor Michael Faraday becomes obsessed with the culture of these groups – especially when his new neighbors, the all-American Oliver and Cheryl Lang, start acting suspiciously.
With each twist, the mystery deepens and the question looms – is Faraday just consumed by fear and driven by paranoia, or has a lethal conspiracy been born on Arlington Road?
Suspenseful and provocative, the film weaves together the thematic strands of friendship and betrayal, trust and deceit, veiled congenial appearances and awful truths, not to mention the sometimes inseparable nature of good and evil.
Joining two of America’s finest actors, Academy Award nominees Jeff Bridges and Tim Robbins, in the film are Oscar nominee Joan Cusack in a rare dramatic role, screen discovery Hope Davis and award-winning actor Robert Gossett.
Arlington Road is a Screen Gems presentation directed by Mark Pellington from Ehren Kruger’s original screenplay – winner of the prestigious Nicholl Fellowship for achievement in screenwriting by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1996.
