The East

The best thing about The East, which is a very tight, sophisticated Hollywood thriller is Brit Marling.  Marling co-wrote the screenplay with director Zal Batmanglij, produced and stars in the film as lead character Jane who leaves her FBI job to work for an elite private intelligence firm.  Jane’s new assignment is to bring down the eco-terrorist anarchist group, The East.  Fantastic premise along with solid performances by all the actors including Marling, Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood), Shiloh Fernandez, Ellen Page, and the delectable Patricia Clarkson as the amoral head of the firm.
