Witherspoon stars as the American wife of an Egyptian-born chemical engineer who disappears on a flight from South Africa to Washington.

Hot off the headlines and onto the screen, this is a rarity -- a political film that delivers its timely message with a cinematic punch and no undue speechifying.
