The third and final installment of the Swedish version of Stieg Larsson's mega best sellers, called The Millenium Trilogy, (aka Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has arrived!! If you're an addict like me, you need your final fix (before we go through it next year again with an American version, alas without the great Swedish actress who plays Lisbeth here.) The film is directed by Daniel Alfredsson, the director of film #2, The Girl who Played with Fire. The reviews have been mixed but for the fans, it's a chance to finally tie up those loose ends and see Noomi Rapace (Lisbeth Salander) in full goth regalia (when she finally gets up from her hospital bed--where we left her at the end of Part 2).
For once tickets are on sale early. I'm in L3:https://tickets.landmarktheatres.com/Ticketing.aspx?TheatreID=267
We'll meet at 5 p.m. at Matteo's Hoboken at 2323 Westwood (like last week--). As usual, if you want dinner, say yes in the comment box when you RSVP.
Here's the summary:
In The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest?the final installment of Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy--Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She?s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she?ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist), she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge?against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.
