If you were a fan of last year’s release, Sound of My Voice, you – like myself – are eagerly anticipating The East, the new film from writer-director Zal Batmanglij and co-writer/actress Brit Marling (Another Earth). The film is playing at Sundance and, today, a trailer has hit.
Its a thriller, no mistaking that. No straight-up horror elements here, however, you might dig aspects to it (Project Mayhem, anyone?). The story centers on contract worker (Marling) who is tasked with infiltrating an anarchist group, only to find herself falling for its leader.
