Because we usually only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews, we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film's synopsis and content.

Synopsis: After Anwar El-ibrahimi (Omar Metwally) goes missing when supposedly on a flight from South Africa to Washington, his American wife Isabella (Reese Witherspoon) desperately ties to find him. But she gets few answers from the CIA or other officials (Meryl Streep, Jake Gyllenhaal, Alan Arkin), who have abducted her husband for suspected terrorist activity.

Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Reese Witherspoon, Alan Arkin, Meryl Streep, Omar Metwally.


Content Information:

This additional information about the movie's content is taken from the notes of various Canadian Film Classification boards:


- Scenes depicting torture, suicide bombing, shootings, and beatings (blood and details are portrayed).

- Depictions of intense fear and emotional suffering.

Sexual Content:

- Nudity in a non-sexual situation.

- Mild sexual innuendo.

- Embracing and kissing.


- Coarse language including infrequent use of a sexual expletive in a non-sexual context, profanity and vulgar expressions.

Of Special Note:

Terrorism is taking the silver screen by storm. Other movies exploring this topic are The Kingdom, Paradise Now, United 93 and The World Trade Center.
