Actor Stuart Townsend’s ambitious directorial debut, Battle in Seattle, re-creates the violent WTO protests of 1999 by following the intersecting lives of protesters, cops, and civilians as they flee, riot, and fight. The drama gets heavy-handed at times, but the film is a triumph, thanks to a crack cast including Connie Nielson, stunning as a TV reporter who joins her subjects in protest.
