BEST NEWS EVER!
FINALLY! “The East” trailer starring Brit Marling, Alexander Skarsgard, and Ellen Page has been released!! Waited a good two years for this movie to come out, and the official trailer can be found online. I have been praising Brit Marling for her amazing writing and acting since the start of her career. “Another Earth” was one of her first indie films, and it is one of my favourite films of all time.
This movie just so happens to have a great group of cast members, notably Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood), Ellen Page (Juno), Patricia Clarkson (Easy A) and Shiloh Fernandez (Red Riding Hood) . It seems like a dark and romantic tale of “opposites-attract” or “protagonist-falls-in-love-with-antagonist” type thing going on.
It’s sad to think, that it probably won’t appear in a theater near me (but here’s to hoping a studio will pick it up for distribution!), and I’ll have to wait for it to appear on Netflix. That will definitely take one more year… shoot…
Here is the synopsis for the movie:
In The EAST, Sarah Moss (Marling) is a brilliant operative for an elite private intelligence firm whose top objective is to ruthlessly protect the interests of their A-list corporate clientele. She is assigned to go undercover to infiltrate an anarchist collective known for executing covert attacks upon major corporations. Living amongst them in an effort to get close to their members, Sarah finds herself unexpectedly torn between two worlds as she starts to fall in love with the group’s charismatic leader.
