More Sundance goods for you: Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij's anarchist thriller THE EAST recently premiered at the festival in Utah to some terrific reviews (check out JoBlo.com's review right HERE); as it comes from the gal behind THE SOUND OF MY VOICE and the weirdly touching ANOTHER EARTH, I'm not surprised. The film doesn't seem to belong in the "horror" category, necessarily, but the trailer is now online and it's weird, disorienting and just plain gripping - more than you can say for most of the genre trailers out there. We're running with this eerie gang.

The synopsis:

Sarah Moss (Marling) is a brilliant operative for an elite private intelligence firm whose top objective is to ruthlessly protect the interests of their A-list corporate clientele. She is assigned to go undercover to infiltrate an anarchist collective known for executing covert attacks upon major corporations. Living amongst them in an effort to get closer to their members, Sarah finds herself unexpectedly torn between two worlds as she starts to fall in love with the group's charismatic leader, finding her life and her priorities irrevocably changed.

Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij wrote the film, which doesn't yet have a release date. In addition to Marling, it stars "True Blood" vamp Alexander Skarsgrd, Ellen Page, Julia Ormond, Shiloh Fernandez and Patricia Clarkson.
