Movie Haiku:Sidney Lumet made many fine films @ the edge where the personal & the political meet. This is the best. Two 60ís radicals cobble a successful life together underground, until their teenage son comes of age. Christine Lahti & Judd Hirsch are the parents. Oscar-nominated River Phoenix plays the son.
