Penelope Ann Miller,
Emily Crane is fired after refusing to give names to a 1951 House Un-American Activities Committee, and takes a part-time job as companion to an old lady. One day her attention is drawn to a noisy argument being conducted largely in German in a neighbouring house, the more so since one of those involved is her main senator prosecutor. Starting to look into things, she gradually enlists the help of FBI officer Cochran who was initially detailed to check her out. Just as well when things turn nasty. Written by

In one scene, Emily overhears The Women in the House character (who is off-screen) speaking to one of the Russians through an interpreter. The Woman is telling the Russian that they will leave for Chicago "tomorrow." The interpreter mistakenly says "tomorrow" in English and then corrects himself mid-word to the correct Russian word "zaftra." See more »
You call this spring? I'm freezing to death.
Doesn't feel cold to me.
That's because where you come from, twenty below's a heat wave.
At least where I come from, the people aren't colder than the weather. It's a dry cold, not like here. Doesn't feel the same.
Yeah, till your nose drops off. I'm putting on the heat.
Don't look suspicious! A motor running but no move?
What are they gonna do, call the cops?

This movie had its moments, but i actually enjoyed it. Hitchcock style film with an interesting plot. If you like hitchcock, you will like this. The cast is good with Kelly McGillis and Jeff Daniels very well casted and Mandy Patinkin is excellent in a rare role.
