Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Guilty By Suspicion

Very nice movie. If you like Robert De Niro you should rent this one. Movie has some foul language, approx. 4-5 "F" words. May be unacceptable for some children. No nudity, minor violence, and a quest for justice.

From back of movie:
A witch hunt has begun. Not one of roving mobs prowling by torchlight. The hunters are politicians sitting before clicking cameras in HUAC hearing rooms. Hollywood is on trial. And David Merrill is asked to "Name names."
Robert De Niro and Annette Bening star in Guilty by Suspicion, a film of "Responding emotional impact" (Houston Post). Producer Irwin Winkler (Rocky, Raging Bull), in his screenwriting/directing debut, recreates Hollywood's "Blacklist Era." De Niro plays Merrill, a director pressured to testify against friends who are suspected communists. And Bening is Merrill's ex-wife, sharing the whirlpool of scandal drawing them together.
