Captivating from the onset, this high-stakes espionage thriller follows Sarah Moss (Brit Marling), a brilliant young ex-FBI agent who is hired by an elite private intelligence firm to infiltrate The East, a mysterious and elusive collective of radical anarchists with an eye-foran- eye approach to taking down corporate criminal scum. But after Sarah succeeds in working her way into their inner circle, she finds herself torn between her responsibility to her employers and the lure of The East’s dangerous brand of justice and its charismatic leadership. Director Zal Batmanglij once again proves himself to be a master of twists in this zeitgeist catching hit featuring Ellen Page, Alexander Skarsgård and Patricia Clarkson. In Person: Director Zal Batmanglij and actress Brit Marling (Thu).
