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.

Good subject, but missing something ...
19 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

Certainly a good subject and a touchy one. We have several movies treating this subject, the environment, the corruption. When I left the cine I asked me the question : Could this be true and yes, certainly. And that its all about, if you leave the cine and keep on thinking about the subject and discuss it with others. I didn't knew that much about Brit Marling and this film awakened my interest. Good acting and she has many opportunities to go as actress, writer or director. The movie is a must see, but ... it is not that much of a thriller, the action scenes are rather short and don't ask that much of attention and that is what it is meant to be, because the movie target is to show us how Brit Marling integrates in the East, her feelings, her changes in ideas. But also in the emotional part I find this movie rather general. It seems that they don't want to go a bit in depth on the subject, keep it simple for the spectator, the client. Keep it mainstream. So, it is not an action movie, but either enters in difficult matters. The subject is although unique and a must see. The end of the movie. Seems that it was time to finish and so they did, a bit in a rush.
