After years in hiding, ex-Weather Underground militant, Nick Sloan, a.k.a. Jim Grant, learns about his old compatriot's arrest for a bank robbery turned deadly in the 1970s, for which he is wanted as an accomplice. This puts the ambitious young local reporter, Ben Shepard, on the scent of a story that exposes Nick as well. As such, Nick goes on the run while taking his daughter to safety. With that accomplished, Nick stays one step ahead of the F.B.I. while pursuing a faint hope to clear his name. Meanwhile, Shepard digs deeper into the case as he discovers the true complexities of another times' determined ideals, even as Nick faces their consequences with another. Written by

I'm a fan of drawn-out, engrossing movies. Although this one doesn't go to the depths that would've made it a 10, it's got great actors, and a solid all around movie. Very good entertainment, plus it made me wonder about the meteorology site I so often use and am a decade-long+ member - the Weather Underground!
Last movie I gave a 10 to was Inception. This one's a 9, based on my knowledge of cinematography - a bachelor's degree worth, and my personal tastes. There's a fine line between being a terrorist and being a patriotic freedom fighter. This movie dwelves some into that, but I believe that to make it to the top, you really have to drill hard on this one, really have to go into the meat of the plot that you're barely touching on historically.
