IMDb user “thewirerules” was able to attend an early screening of Rendition and shares some details of the film in this thread. Tidbits include that Reese’s role is indeed the leading role and her performance is great, as expected. Meryl Streep and Reese share one strong scene in the film, while our girl has no screentime with Jake Gyllenhaal.
Rendition is a very solid film with strong performances and direction, a taut script, and great cinematography and locations. Some scenes can be hard to watch, but the various intertwining storylines pay off and are well edited, and the movie runs on a steady pace. Definetly a possible Oscar contender. The audience seemed to like the movie quite a lot when they gave it a good round of applause at the end. This version of the movie was pretty much in the final stages in terms of editing, etc., and certainly there will be some fine tuning going on.
