Plot: The story follows Sarah Moss (Marling), 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.

I have been hearing about this movie for awhile. Basically have been rooting for Ellen Page in film for years. She has never been an arrogant pain in the ass like a certain blonde who recently got an Oscar for doing nothing. Anyway I love these small independent films that look intelligent. You also tend to find great performances in these films because there is no political crap involved. Just actors playing roles to the best of their ability and a story that is usually not messed with by producers because they don't care enough which is a good thing. Alexander Skarsgard is a great up and coming actor who I hope for some success. Patricia Clarkson is always effective because she always comes off as off-putting with the way she talks...which for a creepy, spy film like this that is great. So...yeah this film has my support. LOL
Brit Marling seems ... talented. What else has she been in? Any good?

Very derivative, but at least the lead doesn't wear purple spandex underwear, have a rubber cape and plastic hammer, and scream I AM THE GOD OF THUNDER!!

So...I am just going to assume you don't like Thor? Just guessing. LOL

@sleuth: No, I'm just sick of comic book movies. I want to see more serious but fun, realistic but escapist flicks, not a bunch of grown men in plastic clothing we all know would chaff the f*ck out of our d*cks within five minutes flat.
But I get it, you're into comic book movies, so that's cool.
I hope this movie turns out well. It seems like it could be pretty good if they don't f*ck it up and make it cliche.

..."like a certain blonde who recently got an Oscar for doing nothing."
You are so bloody right! I've never witnessed such an undeserved Oscar in my entire life. And that stupid arrogant bitch is so average and yet she's praised like the new Liz Taylor of the 21 st century. f*cking c*nts from Hollywood studios.
And I'm sick and tired with all these comic books movies too, how about some real movie with an intelligent story, twist, plot, actors? I guess that's too much to ask these days.

I just imdb'ed this movie. Its got a bunch of great upcoming actors! Jason Ritter (Perfect age of rock and roll), Tobey Kebbel(Dead Mans Shoes), Shiloh Fernandez (Good in Evil Dead)plus the ones mentioned. Ellen Page is a great actress. This movie looks good.
