Year: 2018
Genre: Biography, Comedy, Crime and Drama
Conclusion: 3/5
Also a film known as Stockholm. I love Ethan Hawke and find him very versatile in the films he has been cast in. The script is actually based on the 1974, New Yorker story itself. After watching this it did make me want to look up on the internet all the main facts and find out how much of the film was actually accurate. The aspect I enjoyed the most was watching both Ethan Hawke and Mark Strong’s performances. One fact is that where the bank building used to be is now a clothing store.
