The Interpreter is coming to DVD
Interpreter on DVD
Oscar® winners Nicole Kidman (The Hours, Moulin Rouge) and Sean Penn (
The Interpreter DVD offers an alternate ending and bonus features including; a look inside the United Nations building with interviews and walking tours conducted by official U.N. personnel; a featurette exploring the life of a real U.N. interpreter; and audio commentary with director Sydney Pollack, among several other special features.
The Interpreter marks the first occasion that a feature film crew was granted access to the inner sanctum of the United Nations. Sydney Pollack’s unprecedented access to the UN building was only achieved after Pollack himself negotiated with UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan. The result is the first cinematic glimpse inside the world’s international headquarters. Alfred Hitchcock was famously denied access when he requested access for the classic North By Northwest. Nicole Kidman had to master the fictional African language of Ku for this role.
