When director David Merrill (Robert De Niro) returns to the United States from Paris, he is called before the House Un-American Activities Committee. Though he is not a communist, he refuses to cooperate in order to protect his friend, screenwriter Bunny Baxter (George Wendt). Merrill faces severe repercussions, however, and is blacklisted. Already on rocky terms with his wife, Ruth (Annette Bening) and unable to work in film, theater or advertising, Merrill starts to waver in his principles.

Audience Reviews for Guilty by Suspicion

  • Jun 25, 2008
    De Niro gives his best if most underrated performance. The film however never quite reaches the true levels of paranoia you would expect. It does however show these events happening to very real characters. It's certainly an emotional journey as we see their lives fall apart. Unfortunately it is slightly over melodramatic in its presentation.

    Interesting drama of a dark, shameful period of America's history, the McCarthy blacklist, and the toll it took on decent people. Uniformally excellent performances. It would be nice to think the venality of the committee members was a dramatic exaggeration but sadly it was all to real.

    Should have been better.

    I got lost and distracted many times during this film, but the last half an hour, seemed to hold my attention. I wasn't aware of the 'Blacklist era' or the story behind it, but I'm sure both Robert De Niro and Annette Benning's performances will have served the story well
