[18]

United States 2011, 158 mins
Director: David Fincher
Starring: Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara

The list of hatchet-job Hollywood remakes might be as long as an A-list star's tax bill, but as Matt Reeves showed last year with his LET THE RIGHT ONE IN remake, LET ME IN, a good Scandinavian film doesn't have to be lost in transatlantic translation.

When it was announced that Stieg Larsson's bestselling Millennium Trilogy adaptations were being lined up for a mega-bucks Hollywood make over, few would have sighed at the news that David Fincher (THE SOCIAL NETWORK) was the man at the helm. In his DRAGON TATTOO, Rooney plays eponymous noir punk heroine Lisbeth Salander, with Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist, her journalist partner in vengeance.

Contains strong sex and sexual violence.
