'Hanna' directed by Joe Wright (Atonement) is the story of a teenage girl who goes out into the world for the first time and has to battle for her life.
Hanna, played by Academy Award nominee Saoirse Ronana of 'Atonement' is a 16 year old girl...bright, inquisitive and a devoted daughter. But she is far from your typical teenager...Hanna has the strength, the stamina and the smarts of a super solder.
Her widowed father. Erik (Eric Bana) is ex-CIA. The two of them live nestled away in the snow covered forests of Northern Finland. The only other living creature Hanna has ever seen are the wild elk she hunts. When she's not killing defenseless creatures, Hanna spends her days being put through extreme self-defense workouts by her father. He is after all, training her to become the 'perfect assassin'.
Eric also home-schools Hanna. But her education falls short. She only has two books...An Encyclopedia and a book of fairy tales. She yearns for more. Hanna wonders what music sounds like...
