The East - now playing

Join us for the suspenseful and provocative espionage thriller The East.

Director Zaj Batmanglij and writer/actress Brit Marling have created their third film together (after Sound of My Voice & Another Earth).

Brit Marling stars as former FBI agent Sarah Moss, who's starting a new career at an elite private intelligence firm that ruthlessly protects the interests of its A-list corporate clientele. Handpicked for a plum assignment, Sarah goes deep undercover to infiltrate The East, an elusive anarchist collective seeking revenge against major corporations guilty of covering up criminal activity. Determined, highly-trained and resourceful, Sarah soon ingratiates herself with the group, overcoming their initial suspicions and joining them on their next action or "jam." But living closely with the intensely committed members of The East, Sarah finds herself torn between her two worlds as she starts to connect with anarchist Benji (Alexander Skarsgård) and the rest of the collective, and awakens to the moral contradictions of her personal life.

Also starring Ellen Page, Patricia Clarkson and Julia Ormond.

Dinner/discussion at The Imperial restaurant after the film.

    This was a unique and interesting film; thought-provoking; extraordinarily well acted by Brit Marling. The group was friendly, as usual, and it's great to hear different points of view on the film. The food an prices were great at Pho, although the acoustics were bad and I had trouble hearing a lot of the discussion.

    An interesting film, but not seamless. Brit Marling is a young screenwriter and actress who will bear watching in the future.
    Pho on 6th was a great and reasonably priced dining experience. We'll use that again.

    The East is an engaging, thought provoking, emotion stirring movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's one of those films where time passed without awareness of my surroundings, so engrossed was I in the movie. Good flick!!
