Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard get serious in the just-released still from The East.
The psychological thriller, directed by Zal Batmanglij, is about a government operative (played by Brit Marling) trying to infiltrate a eco-driven domestic terrorist group seeking revenge on corporations who profit off of the destruction of the people (think pharmaceutical companies). Ellen and Alex both play members of the anarchist group.
Sounds super creepy but also different from the usual gun-slinging thrillers. We're definitely interested to see what critics think when it premieres at this year's Sundance!
Oh, and if anything, this new still shows Ellen has some REAL acting chops. We just don't understand how ANYONE can keep a straight face next to that
