Hanna, starring young Irish actress Saoirse Ronan, goes on release in Ireland in May and should prove to be popular.
The film’s premise is a bit different from your typical action thriller. We’re accustomed to seeing adult assassins, but a teenager? This almost makes me think of Dark Angel’s trained killers ..
Here’s the official synopsis:
“Award-winning director Joe Wright creates a boldly original suspense thriller with HANNA, starring Academy Award nominee Saoirse Ronan (The Lovely Bones, Atonement) in the title role. Raised by her father (Eric Bana of Star Trek), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Finland, Hanna’s upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin. The turning point in her adolescence is a sharp one; sent into the world by her father on a mission, Hanna journeys stealthily across Europe while eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity.”
Judging by the trailer there’s plenty of action.
