Goofs

In the scene where they found a deer that was killed and left behind by a hunter they refer to the deer as "she" all throughout the scene, but if you look at the shot that shows the deer's head the deer has small antlers. Since female deer don't have antlers so they should have been referring to it as "he". See more »

A plot we have never seen before.
20 September 2013 | by 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.
