The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo at the Circle Cinema
The non-profit Circle Cinema presents “THE DRAGON TATTOO” from director Niels Arden Oplev, based on the novel by Stieg Larsson.
Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her beloved uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed and troubled but resourceful computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet’s disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from almost forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vanger’s are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.
Author Stieg Larsson, who died suddenly in 2004, left behind three unpublished novels, known as the ”Millennium” trilogy, which have become a global sensation, elevating Larsson to the world’s second best-selling author last year. “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” is one of the decade’s major literary success stories, selling over 8,000,000 copies worldwide and the film adaptation is the highest grossing Swedish film in history and 2009’s highest-grossing European production.
“THE DRAGON TATTOO” is unrated, is 152 minutes in length, and is in Swedish with English subtitles. It will open at the Circle Cinema on Friday April 30. For more information, visit circlecinema.com, or call 592-, that’s 592-3456.
