The East

Spy on us, we'll spy on you.
  • We really need to organise better accommodation.

Based on true experiences by the director and star, this film is a modern twist on the 'undercover cop' genre. In this case, a female agent infiltrates a group of so-called eco-terrorists, who take direct action against corporations which they believe are operating against national and natural law. Initially she struggles to win their trust, but eventually is accepted and taken on a job. How far will she go to maintain her cover, and will growing personal feelings for the group's leader compromise her position? Or is it her that is actually being fooled?

BlasphemySome use of profanity (Jesus Christ)
Drug abuseSocial alcohol, mild impact
CommentsThemes are mature and complex and deal with issues of corporate greed without accountability. Eco-terrorists fight them, is this right or wrong? There's a blurring of the legality of behaviour on both sides. There could be some scenes that distress younger viewers with an opening scene, which shows birds and sea creatures trapped in polluted waters. It's pretty disturbing.
