Arlington Road

Rated 3.0 Domestic terrorism rears its ugly head in this slick thriller from director Mark Pellington. Jeff Bridges plays a widowed Washington, D.C., university professor who has a young son (Spencer Treat Clark), a girlfriend (Hope Davis) and clean-cut neighbors (Tim Robbins and Joan Cusack) who may or may not be serial bombers. The film has a messy, incredulous ending that pushes many social and political hot buttons, provides plenty of paranoia for conspiracy junkies like myself to chew on and gives a deep chill to the saying “there goes the neighborhood.”
