The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Based on Stieg Larsson’s international best-selling novel, this film adaptation was the top grossing European film of 2009. Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her beloved uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) and the tattooed and troubled but resourceful computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) to investigate. When the pair link Harriet’s disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from almost forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vanger’s are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves. In Swedish with English subtitles. Director: Niels Arden Oplev 2009 Sweden 152min. NR 35mm

As someone who has already seen the film, it’s a definite must-see and be sure to check out the Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s other films this month including a screening of Gone With the Wind, a Momma Mia Sing-A-Long, Brokeback Mountain plus much, much more!
