HANNA

April 15, 2012

Last night, we watched the movie Hanna. According to IMDB, this movie is about “a 16-year-old who was raised by her father to be the perfect assassin is dispatched on a mission across Europe, tracked by a ruthless intelligence agent and her operatives.

It is an interesting idea and Saoirse Ronan is amazing as Hanna. However, we spent the night trying to figure out a) how Cate Blanchett, who is usually spectacular, was allowed to keep that god-awful American accent – why not just let her be British? and b) which actress played the false Marissa. It was Michelle Dockery, otherwise known as Lady Mary Crawley from Downton Abbey, which we both agreed, we’d much rather be watching.
