Movies Arlington Road (1999, Jeff Bridges, Tim Robbins) Published 6 months ago on November 21, 2018 Mark Pellington’s taut conspiracy thriller trades on America’s fear of not just the enemy without but the enemy within, with JEFF BRIDGES as Michael Faraday, an expert in terrorism, discovering his subject lives down the road. The film opens with Faraday coming across a badly injured boy. Rushing him to hospital, he finds that his parents are Oliver and Cheryl Lang (TIM ROBBINS and JOAN CUSACK), who live just down the street Faraday has moved into, Arlington Road. The three become friends, particularly since Faraday is still trying to get over the death of his wife, a FBI agent killed in a botched raid. He’s trying to get back on the rails through work and the love of his son Grant (SPENCER TREAT CLARK) and girlfriend Brooke (HOPE DAVIS). But as the relationship develops with his neighbours, he starts to notice inconsistencies in Oliver and Cheryl’s tales of their past. Suspicious, he use his expertise to investigate and what he uncovers is frightening. But Oliver hasn’t remained free by chance and he can turn the tables on Faraday to the point where the hunter may well become the hunted. Although somewhat overtaken by the events of September 11, the film still taps into atrocities like Timothy McVeigh’s bombing in Oklahoma City which saw a nation look inward to spot some of its own demons. Bridges character’s job makes him better equipped than John Doe to investigate his suspicions but the real plaudits go to Robbins and Cusack, he starting off with the persona seen in Jacob’s Ladder and The Shawshank Redemption, she slightly goofy but then becoming not just creepy but distinctly dangerous as they shed their carapace of all-Americaness to reveal their true colours. production details USA | 117 minutes | 1999 Director: Mark Pellington Script: Ehren Kruger cast Jeff Bridges as Michael Faraday Tim Robbins as Oliver Lang Joan Cusack as Cheryl Lang Hope Davis as Brooke Wolfe Robert Gossett as FBI Agent Whit Carver Mason Gamble as Brady Lang Spencer Treat Clark as Grant Faraday Stanley Anderson as Dr. Archer Scobee Viviane Vives as Nurse Lee Stringer as Orderly Darryl Cox as Troopmaster Loyd Catlett as Delivery Man Sid Hillman as Phone Technician Auden Thornton as Hannah Lang Mary Ashleigh Green as Daphne Lang John Hussey as Accident Detective Grant Garrison as Student Kemp Jenni Tooley as Ponytail Girl Laura Poe as Leah Faraday Christopher Dahlberg as FBI Buckley Gabriel Folse as FBI Marks Hunter Burkes as Hutch Parsons Diane Peterson as Ma Parsons Josh Ridgway as 18-Year-Old Parsons Hans Stroble as 16-Year-Old Parsons Michelle Du Bois as Parsons Girl CrimeDarryl CoxDramaEhren KrugerHope DavisJeff BridgesJoan CusackLee StringerLoyd CatlettMark PellingtonMason GambleMysteryRobert GossettSpencer Treat ClarkStanley AndersonThrillerTim RobbinsViviane Vives Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes18 mins ago Big Texas Fix: Dream House (S1EP7 DIY Sat 25 May 2019) Dream House: Michael and Ashley stumble upon a pre-1900s Victorian home after doing some curbside dumpster diving, so they hit...
