About The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011)
This relentlessly harsh thriller is based on the source novel rather than the Swedish film, and, although set in Sweden, features English-speaking actors. Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) is an investigative journalist whose honest ethics get him into trouble when one of his stories appears to have been fabricated. While he waits for a court to decide his fate, a businessman named Henrik Vanger (Christopher Plummer) asks him to solve the mystery of his granddaughter's disappearance. Harriet Vanger went missing 40 years ago, but Henrik cannot forget her and wants the truth to be known. As Blomkvist investigates the Vanger family, he is himself subject to the scrutiny of an unconventional young computer hacker named Lisbeth (Rooney Mara). When Blomkvist needs a research assistant, the two team up to shed light on the mystery.
