Eastern Promises

The second edition of the Leids Film Festival is being held this weekend. From a number of interesting premieres we chose to attend the new David Cronenberg, Eastern Promises, this evening. To quote a review in Variety:

A superbly wrought yarn set in the milieu of first-generation Russian mobsters in London that is simultaneously tough-minded and compassionate about the human condition, Eastern Promises instantly takes its place among David Cronenberg’s very best films.
