Based on the Joan Didion novel of the same name, the footage above features Journalist and single mother Elena McMahon (Anne Hathaway) investigating Contra activity in Central America. When her coverage gets censored, her acerbic father (Willem Dafoe) falls ill and leaves her a series of unfinished and unsavory arms deals in the same location, revealing himself as a major player in the story she’s trying to break. Now that she’s inherited a position as an arms dealer, she must avoid a U.S. state official (Ben Affleck) she knows from the States and decide if her life back home is what she really wants.
Check out the trailer above, and in case you missed it, an anime film of The Witcher is coming to Netflix.
