Wondering why times are missing?

The East

Writer-Director Zal Batmanglij and writer-star Brit Marling (who gave us the intriguing cult drama Sound of My Voice) reunite for this smart, ripped-from-the-headlines thriller. Marling plays an operative for an elite private intelligence firm who is tasked with infiltrating a freegan anarchist group executing terrorist attacks on major corporations. Just to make things complicated, our heroine starts to develop feelings for the charismatic leader (Alexander Skarsgard from "True Blood"). Ellen Page, Patricia Clarkson, Jason Ritter and Julia Ormond round out the cast. 116 minutes PG-13.
