Interesting Performances, Dull Screenplay, Ugly Subject.

Glorifying and/or justifying long-ago domestic terrorists, especially in this most recently sad time, is ever so inappropriate and distasteful that frankly, were anyone other than Redford (Mr. Sundance) attached to the project, no distributor would have touched this film with a ten foot pole. If possible to leave the sentiment and emotion of current events outside the theater door, what you'll find inside is still a bit insidious in that it somewhat validates the actions of the Weather Underground by seeking to elicit empathy (perhaps even sympathy) for one or two of its now elderly terrorist participants. Other than the "advocacy cinematic theme" the performances here are quite good, as should be expected given the A-list cast. The play is a bit run-on and the film itself could easily have been edited to an hour thirty with no great loss. Over all, I advise seeing it if you like politico-fantasies which idolize terrorist murderers. Otherwise, skip it. You'll likely be glad you did
