It contains such a gripping performance by Robin Wright Penn that it succeeds, in a way, despite itself. To see great work is a reason to see an imperfect movie, and to observe how the movie loses its way may be useful even if it's frustrating.
The movie is so single-minded in those serious intentions -- to make us question who really are the extremists and who the victims -- that it twists its characters into knots and sends its plot in odd directions.
