By Creative Media Times“Witness the hostage situation that shocked the world.”
After a successful awards run last year, Ethan Hawk returns in a film based on 1973 bank heist and hostage crisis that occurred at the Norrmalmstorg square in Stockholm, Sweden.
Based on the title and plot, many may recall the phrase “Stockholm syndrome,””the psychological tendency of a hostage to bond with his or her captor.” The film tells the story that inspired the term.
The film is from Canadian writer/director Robert Budreau, who collaborated with Hawke in the highly underrated 2015 musical drama “Born to Be Blue,” where the actor played the role of jazz musician Chet Baker.
Hawk recently appeared in the critically acclaimed Paul Schraeder directed drama “First Reformed,” which gave the actor multiple best actor recognition last year and some of the best acclaim in his career.
“Stockholm” premiered last year at the Tribeca Film Festival and co-stars Noomi Rapace and Mark Strong. The film is set for release on April 12, 2019.
