The House on Carroll Street ★½ 1988 (PG)

New York 1951, the middle of the McCarthy era. A young woman overhears a plot to smuggle Nazi war criminals into the U.S. She's already lost her job because of accusations of subversion, and it's not easy persuading FBI agent Daniels that she knows what she's talking about. Contrived plot and melodramatic finale help sink this period piece. 111m/C VHS, DVD . Kelly McGillis, Jeff Daniels, Mandy Patinkin, Jessica Tandy; D: Peter Yates; W: Walter Bernstein; C: Michael Ballhaus; M: Georges Delerue.
