Transsiberian - dir. Brad Anderson - 2008

OPENING: JULY 18th,(Location: Angelika Film Center, New York, NY.)

A crime drama and thriller directed by Brad Anderson, produced by Julio Fernández, written by Brad Anderson and Will Conroy with Woody Harrelson, Emily Mortimer, Kate Mara, Eduardo Noriega, Thomas Kretschmann and Sir Ben Kingsley.

An American couple, Roy (Woody Harrelson) and Jessie (Emily Mortimer), decide to take the long way home from their recent sojourn in Asia on the legendary Trans-Siberian Express train from Beijing to Moscow. On their way, they meet another couple from the West, Carlos (Eduardo Noriega) and Abby (Kate Mara), with whom they quickly form a familiar bond that often unites fellow travellers away from home. When Roy accidentally gets separated from the group at a stopover, Jessie begins to realize that their compatriots aren’t exactly who or what they seem to be. The real danger begins to surface as a deceitful Russian detective (Sir Ben Kingsley) andlocals terrorize Jessie in this unforgettable journey.

I've been a big fan of Brad Anderson since I discovered Session 9 at the bottom of a shelf in a Hollywood Video years ago. Session 9, The Machinist, Sounds Like, and now Transsiberian all confirm that the man crafts genre well. It's a shame he's so overlooked.

I was fortunate enough to scope out Transsiberian when it debuted at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival and I thought it was great. To read a solid review on the film, visit Zoom In Online here:

Can't wait to see what's next for this guy!
