About the Book
From producer Ridley Scott and directed by Zal Batmanglij comes a taut, sexy thriller starring Brit Marling (Arbitrage), Alexander Skarsgard (TV's “True Blood”) and Oscar® Nominee Ellen Page. Sarah Moss (Marling) is an ambitious new recruit at an elite private intelligence firm. Her first undercover assignment is to infiltrate “The East ,” an elusive activist collective that terrorizes corporate leaders who commit crimes against humanity. The more involved she gets, the more Sarah’s life is in danger in this “great conspiracy thriller” (Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News).

My Take on the Book
I did not see this in the past, but as I love movies I was excited to be able to see what it was all about. In watching the movie itself I have to say that this is the type of movie that will make you think deeply about your life and what your life is all about. This is not an action movie, but it is a deeply profound one. The writers did a great job at developing a script that you can connect with and characters that are truly real. On top of this the actors did an admirable job at developing their characters further and allowing the viewer into the emotion of the moment and empathize with what the characters are going through themselves. You will find yourself questioning which direction the main character should take, and the movie keeps you at attention throughout as these defining moments keep coming.
