Little Red Riding Hood
The Bourne Identity
is probably the easiest way to describe this thrillingly original film from
director Joe Wright, but even that doesn't really capture its unique, oddly surreal tone. Hanna (Saoirse Ronan) is a 16-year-old girl who has never left her remote Lapland home, where she has spent her life being tutored in the deadly skills of the assassin by her ex-CIA father (Eric Bana). When the Agency comes looking for the pair, Hanna finds herself navigating unfamiliar territory, pursued by the ruthless Marissa (a brilliantly icy Cate Blanchett), who's determined to terminate her and her father. Ronan's character is utterly fascinating, a kind of holy fool who sees the modern world through innocent eyes, but who could also break your neck with a flick of her wrist. Wright also succeeds in blending the strange, almost fairy-tale atmosphere with some expertly conceived action and unusual, well-sketched supporting characters, with Tom Hollander's shell-suit wearing, peroxide-coiffed thug a particularly exotic pleasure.
A former CIA agent raises his daughter alone in the wilderness of Finland, teaching her to be the world's deadliest assassin. When she turns 16, she is sent to carry out her one intended mission, but as she travels the world in search of her target, she is pursued by a CIA operative with a link to her mysterious past. Action thriller, with Saoirse Ronan, Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana.
