Trivia

The East was originally intended to be a sequel to A Civil Action, with John Travolta reprising his role as a now broke and emasciated Jan Schlichtmann. However, scheduling conflicts prevented the appearance when Travolta signed on to shoot Killing Season with Robert De Niro. The script was modified, and Ellen Page eventually signed on for the role.

A plot we have never seen before.
20 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The east is one of those movies the just fall from the tree, and when they fall you realize it is probably on of the best movies of the year. The fact some eco-terroristts decide to fight against large evil corporations(pharma,oil,coal etc.) makes the story even more interesting. Brit Marlin does a brilliant acting, being an undercover agent, but a human one, not one of those Hollywood super-heroes-I-save-the-world-again. The rest of the actors have a brilliant acting. If you want a "human" movie where intelligence and reality clash from start to finish, this is your movie, but remember to watch it slowly, so you can get the most of it.
