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.

Unexpected
22 September 2013 | by (Kailua, HI) – See all my reviews

After watching some of the trailers for this movie, I assumed it was going to be qua-say Fahrenheit 911 done in a dramatically acted story... I assumed is was a film only for the 99%'er liberal democrat.

Boy was I wrong! AND pleasantly surprised. This film is full of heart and ugly truths delivered brilliantly and beautifully. I particularly enjoyed the side characters as their roles were impact-full to the overall feel one cant help but take away. This film evoked feelings of remorse, gentleness, a sense of being cheated, love, anger and sorrow. Yet it was uplifting and gave me a sense of hopefulness as well.

The only reason I don't give it a full 10 is because I really wanted to see more and more at the end!! Don't get me wrong, its got a great ending... I just wanted MORE!!!
