Kidman stars as African-born U.N. interpreter Silvia Broome, who inadvertently overhears a death threat against an African head of state scheduled to address the United Nation's General Assembly. Realizing she's become a target of the assassins as well, Silvia's desperate to thwart the plot...if only she can survive long enough to get someone to believe her. Sean Penn is Tobin Keller, the federal agent charged with protecting the interpreter, who nonetheless suspects she may not be telling the whole truth. Silvia and Tobin, by nature, see life from different points of view: one, a U.N. interpreter, believes in the power and sanctity of words; the other, a Secret Service agent, believes in reading people based on their behavior, no matter what is said.
3 Days of The Condor it ain't. Odd timing given the fact there's a real life conspiracy in the UN right now... involving the French, Kofi Annan, his son, dozens of UN officials, the Russians, Saddam Hussein. In case you missed it, they've been ripping off billions for years that has led directly to the death of thousands of Iraqi children.

As to this movie... I expect it aiming for Hitchcock but suspect there's less to it than meets the eye.
