Chris Cooper, Ryan Phillippe
Based-on-fact thriller. Cooper received great praise for his performance as FBI agent Robert Hanssen, who, after 25 years of service, is put under surveillance as a suspected sex offender. Phillippe plays Eric O’Neill, the ambitious young upstart that gets assigned the case. Laura Linney and Gary Cole co-star.
DVD INFO: Two separately packaged DVDs are available. One preserves the film in the anamorphic widescreen format, while the other hacks off nearly a third of the picture for the fullscreen (aka pan & scan) format. Shop carefully. Both versions include a commentary track with director Billy Ray and the real O’Neill, seven deleted scenes, two alternate scenes and a couple of featurettes.
