Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij are back with another film, similar to The Sound of My Voice. The East is about a shadowy anarchist group and a private intelligence operative (Marling) who goes undercover to stop it. Ellen Page, Alexander Skarsgard, Julia Ormond, and Patricia Clarkson also star.
In THE EAST, Sarah Moss (Marling) is a brilliant operative for an elite private intelligence firm whose top objective is to ruthlessly protect the interests of their A-list corporate clientele. She is assigned to go undercover to infiltrate an anarchist collective known for executing covert attacks upon major corporations. Living amongst them in an effort to get closer to their members, Sarah finds herself unexpectedly torn between two worlds as she starts to fall in love with the group’s charismatic leader, finding her life and her priorities irrevocably changed.
