This video is the movie trailer for Hanna, starring Saoirse Ronan, Cate Blanchett, and Eric Bana. I must admit I’m impressed enough by this short teaser to know this will be one movie I’ll make the trip out for.
Ronan plays the titular Hanna, a young girl who has been trained in a remote Finnish forest by her dad for reasons unknown. By the time she reaches adulthood she’s a lethal killing machine.
Without giving too much away, it turns out Ronan isn’t quite as human as the rest of us, being the result of a CIA experiment which subtly altered her DNA. A little far-fetched perhaps, but it could work.
If it works, and I won’t know until I’ve actually seen the movie in full, it’ll be because Ronan is completely believable as an innocent young girl, so when she starts killing people left, right, and center it’ll be a shock to the system.
