Two years after “Another Earth” and “Sound of My Voice” catapulted her
to indie-icon status at Sundance, Brit Marling is back this summer with
her latest writing-acting effort, “The East.” Directed and co-written
by her “Sound of My Voice” collaborator Zal Batmanglij, the Fox
Searchlight thriller centers on an ex-FBI agent (Marling) who
infiltrates an anarchist collective known as The East suspected of
attacking corporate CEOs. Once embedded within the group (led by Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard), however, she
soon finds herself on their side. Watch the latest trailer for the film below. “The East” opens May 31 in select theaters.
