THE DEVILS OWN, Alan J. Pakulas last film, is a character-driven thriller that confronts suspense and gritty realism head-on. Harrison Ford plays Tom OMeara, an Irish-American cop in New York who opens his home and family to Francis Frankie McGuire (Brad Pitt), whom they believe is a refuge-seeking immigrant from Belfast. They later discover that their visitor is an IRA rebel on a terrorist mission. Buoyed by tense, strong performances from both stars, the film is ultimately a tragedy that explores the unexpected friendship of two men of similar ethnic roots, yet of different places, times, and values, and the cruel and senseless cycle of violence they face.
