Stockholm — Official Trailer


added: Wed, Feb 27th '19

Ethan Hawke (Training Day, Boyhood) plays an unhinged cowboy bank robber and Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, Bright) is Hawke's overly sympathetic hostage in the official trailer for the upcoming true-crime movie "Stockholm."

Based on "the absurd but true story" of the 1973 Swedish bank robbery during which hostages developed a psychological and protective bond with their captors -- it's the infamous hostage crisis that would later be remembered as the first case of "Stockholm Syndrome," the film is written and directed by Canadian filmmaker Robert Budreau, who previously worked with Hawke on the critically acclaimed jazz trumpeter Chet Baker biopic "Born to Be Blue."

"Stockholm," which premiered to strong reviews at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, also stars Mark Strong (Kingsman: The Golden Circle, The Imitation Game) as Hawke's bank robbery accomplice and Christopher Heyerdahl (Hell on Wheels, Deadly Class) as the police chief.

The film is being released in New York and Los Angeles on April 12th, with other cities to follow.

Writer/director Robert Budreau fictionalizes the 1973 six-day Swedish bank robbery that inspired the term "Stockholm Syndrome".

Ethan Hawke stars as Lars Nystrom, an American-raised ex-convict who holds the staff of the Kreditbanken hostage while negotiating with the Swedish police. Apart from the money, he is also invested in arranging for his former partner-in-crime (Mark Strong) to be released from jail.
