Betrayed ★★ 1988 (R)

A rabid political film, dealing with an implausible FBI agent infiltrating a white supremacist organization via her love affair with a handsome farmer who turns out to be a murderous racist. Winger is memorable in her role as the FBI agent, despite the film's limitations, and admirers of CostaGavras's directorial work and political stances will want to see how the director botched this one. 112m/C VHS, DVD . Tom Berenger, Debra Winger, John Mahoney, John Heard, Albert Hall, Jeffrey DeMunn; D: Constantin CostaGavras; W: Joe Eszterhas; C: Patrick Blossier.
