Editor's Note
George Washington University professor Michael Faraday (Jeff Bridges) teaches a course in terrorism, but after his wife, an FBI agent, is killed under questionable circumstances, he becomes obsessed with the topic. An all-American family moves in across the street, but Faraday soon suspects that they might be terrorists themselves. Bridges's portrayal of the man fighting against a virtually unseen enemy, with no one believing him, is reminiscent of Jimmy Stewart in Alfred Hitchcock's THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH.

Plot Summary
ARLINGTON ROAD follows in the grand tradition of Hollywood suspense thrillers that pit a lone man against a vast, hidden conspiracy--or is it a conspiracy? Jeff Bridges plays Michael Faraday, who starts out as a loving, caring father and teacher but slowly turns into a desperate, crazed man searching for answers in a suburban world that has been turned upside down.

Director Mark Pellington lingers on Bridges's face as it goes from ruggedly handsome and somber to wild and crazed. As Faraday tries to uncover the truth about his new neighbors, Oliver and Cheryl Lang (Tim Robbins and Joan Cusack), he also struggles with his own inner demons. Is he just imagining things, as he still has not gotten over his wife's death at the hands of what was first believed to be a terrorist, or are his fear and paranoia real? Pellington stays a few steps ahead the entire way, leading to a most thrilling and unexpected conclusion to this nightmare of suburban terror.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone
"...The movie generates real excitement..." 08/05/1999 p.80

Entertainment Weekly
"...Builds to a beautifully plotted -- if totally preposterous -- parlor trick of an ending....Cusack scares the bejesus out of Hope Davis [and viewers]..." -- Rating: B 10/29/1999 p.118

New York Times
"...A stylish throwback to the paranoid thrillers of the 1970's..." 07/09/1999 p.E1

Los Angeles Times
"...ARLINGTON ROAD is diabolically clever....An edgy, action-filled entertainment, sustained by Bridges' enduring ability to project thoughtful men of decency and courage..." 07/09/1999 p.C6

Chicago Sun-Times
"...The underlying insights of the movie will make you think....ARLINGTON ROAD is a thriller that contains ideas..." 07/09/1999 p.31

The New York Times 0 of 10
The film, well paced and cleverly constructed as it builds to one last killer twist, becomes a battle of nerves between (the characters of) Faraday and Lang. It also becomes a splendid showcase for two exceptionally commanding actors as their characters square off... While this film's conception of a terrorist threat is apparent early on, its strength lies in a string of ingenious little surprises, and in an overall deviousness that doesn't show until the story is over... - Janet Maslin
