Arlington Road

* * 1/2*

Arlington Road is a thriller about a college professor (Jeff Bridges) who begins to suspect that his seemingly normal next-door neighbors (Tim Robbins and Joan Cusack) are terrorists. The professor must apply his book knowledge when he takes matters into his own hands. Hope Davis and Mason Gamble also star, and Mark Pellington directs.

Capsule review: Disturbing tale, if a bit implausible at times. Too much of the plot is coincidence driven, particularly the plot devised by a character who claims to leave nothing to chance. Still, the movie's tone is appropriately unsettling, and bolstered by good performances all around. (Sony Screen Gems)
