A very good movie

I thought it was really a good flick but something really bothered me. Indeed, I found it rather confusing that Linda Hunt was playing a man. But a part from that, it is a very good movie. There are some good directing, good mood, good acting and some good chemistry between Mel Gibson and Sigourney Weaver. Definitely worth a look.

"Linda Hunt So your agent tells you about this role where you get to play a Chinese/Australian dwarf of all things; it’s probably not what an aspiring actress would have dreamt of doing, though Hunt is far from your average actress, as anyone who has seen this film can attest to. Aiding an Australian wire journalist during political turmoil in 1965 Indonesia, her pivotal supporting character, Billy Kwan, is the connection between the lead stars, Mel Gibson and Sigourney Weaver. But this role fo"
