Eastern Promises (2007)

A Russian teenager living in London who dies during childbirth leaves clues to a midwife in her journal that could tie her child to a rape involving a violent Russian mob family.

Dark, intense and atmospheric gangster movie thate seems to transcend the genre with its brilliant direction and fantastic cast, but also doesn't shy away from moments of sentimentality.

Maltin***: "Intelligent thriller set against a rich tableau...Mortensen is superb and has one unforgettable scene in a Turkish bathhouse."
