FBI agent Cathy Weaver (Debra Winger) goes undercover to investigate an underground white supremacist group connected to the killing of a controversial radio host. Directed by Costa-Gavras and co-starring Tom Berenger
After a Jewish radio host is murdered, FBI agent Cathy Weaver (Debra Winger) is sent undercover to infiltrate a close-knit farming community believed to be harbouring the men responsible. She soon meets and falls for local farmer Gary Simmons (Tom Berenger) a well-respected Vietnam veteran, but it’s not long before her suspicions are aroused. Realising that Simmons is leading a double-life as the leader of a white supremacist group, responsible for a series of brutal crimes, Agent Weaver must decide where her loyalties lie, with the man she loves or the country she swore to protect.
Directed by Costa-Gavras (Missing) and written by Joe Eszterhas (Basic Instinct, Jagged Edge), Betrayed is an edge of your seat thriller with an excellent supporting cast including John Heard, John Mahoney and Betsy Blair.
