Rising director/writer Zal Batmanglij’s “The East” is receiving additional acclaim following its 2013 Sundance Film Festival premiere earlier this week.

Starring Ellen Page (“Inception) and Alexander Skarsgard (“True Blood”), the film tells the story of an anarchist group that seek justice for corporate environmental wrongs — and the private intelligence agent that infiltrates their ranks. Some reviews from around the web:

From JoBlo:

“It’s a rock-solid techno-thriller that’s extremely polished and fairly lavish in scope. I guess I had pigeonholed Batmanglij as a one kind of filmmaker, but I have to admit this is the most effective and polished jump into the mainstream since Christopher Nolan’s early films. Am I saying Batmanglij’s the next Nolan? That might be premature- but ‘The East’ offers compelling evidence.”

From CinemaBlend:

“The East is a small scale, welcome respite from the usual drone of Hollywood genre– and yet another example of how Sundance breakout stars can get only better as their careers get bigger.

From Slashfilm

“This movie looks fantastic, but the screenplay by Brit and Zal is what impressed me the most. Almost every scene involves a twist which furthers the plot into a new direction. Exposition and set-up is accomplished cleverly with visuals, when other movies would have done so in dialogue. The tension builds to a point where you’ll be holding your breath on the edge of your seat.”

Look for The East to hit theaters sometime this year. A new trailer for the film is below.
