The East Details


A covert female operative infiltrates an anarchist faction that stages clandestine attacks on major corporations, and finds her mission compromised when she falls for the group's charismatic leader in this tense and topical thriller from Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij -- the creative duo behind the indie hit Zal Batmanglij. When a mysterious group begins turning unsafe products against the very CEOs who manufacture them, former FBI agent Sarah Moss (Marling) is hired by a powerful intelligence firm to expose the culprit. Before long, Sarah has integrated herself into The East, the group thought to be responsible the frightening attacks, and she begins to collect evidence against them. In time, however, Sarah finds her sympathies shifting to the very people she once set out to destroy, leading to an intense crisis of conscience that causes her to reassess her priorities as she works quietly to maintain her cover. Alexander Skarsgård, Ellen Page, Toby Kebbell, and Patricia Clarkson co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
