Transcript Sept. 23,1983 / Montrose Voice 19 Daniel: The Story of 'Radicalization' Films By Steve Warren In the 60s they called you a "hippie commie pinko fag" if you showed signs of being any one of the four—or sometimes if you were just young. Daniel (Timothy Hutton) is young, and he has the added burden of being the son of the most notorious scapegoats of the McCarthy era. Sidney Lumet's Daniel, adapted by E.L. Doctorow from his novel The Book of Daniel, is a fictionalized projection of what might have happened to the children of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were executed for passing U.S. atomic secrets to Russia, leading to the present nervous state that's called "the balance of power." Susan (Amanda Plummer) growB up neurotic, grasping at any possible source of the peace Bhe'll never find. Daniel internalizes everything, hiding his emotions behind a wall of cynicism. When he feels his sister slipping away, he becomes determined to get at the truth of their parents' life and death. As he once promised to become a lawyer to save his mother, he tries to save his sister by being a detective. This is really the story of his radicaliza- tion. Golden-hued flashbacks make up about half of Daniel; the rest of it occurs in the electric tones of the late 60s. Lumet has recreated protest rallies of three different eras for background, but it's the intimate scenes that stand out in memory: Daniel's visits to Susan in the mental hospital and their trip to prison to see their condemned parents. The politics are sketched in simply but extremely well—a little intellectual Marxist talk, growing social awareness, a Paul Robeson concert. The politics behind the trial are deftly handled in a few telling allusions: "It was a career-making case. Iff ^ ""iffftEEt teotf % jgffnWrRK ^ THEM Timothy Hutton becomes a kid of detective of his own life as he investigates the events leading to his parents' trial n execution for stealing atomic secrets for Russia in Paramount's "Daniel" Everybody did well." The Communist Party, we are told, abandoned the defendants until after the trial, "when the propaganda value was too great to be ignored." Hutton manages to show the camera what Daniel's hiding from the world, despite the added disadvantage of working with several stage-trained performers who tend to give too much for the screen. Plummer overacts but it works well in context, unlike Tovah Feldschuh as the bourgeois bitch whose father betrayed his friends. Her scene is even badly photographed, as if Lumet took the day off. Mandy Patinkin is excellent as the father, and Lindsay Crouse is good as his wife. Ed Asner gives a huggable—and moBt un-Lou Gran tish—performance as their defense attorney. Fact or fiction—and you can bet there's plenty of both here—Daniel is one hell of a story. It pushed all my buttons and drew more tears from me than any movie since Ordinary People.
