  1. Millennium Trilogy Blowout!

“This uptight, ferocious little gamine has won our hearts.”—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“Ms. Rapace over the course of three movies has made this tricky, irresistible character her own.”
—Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

Stieg Larsson’s three novels, known collectively as The Millennium Trilogy, are a worldwide sensation. The film adaptations have quickly followed suit, making a star of young actress Noomi Rapace as the tough, enigmatic Goth-girl loner Lisbeth Salander. No prior familiarity with the novels is necessary to enjoy these thrillers, and each one stands alone. Catch one or all three, December 26-January 6.

  2. 2009, Niels Arden Oplev, Sweden/Denmark/Germany/Norway, 147 min.
  3. With Michael Nyqvist, Noomi Rapace

A twisty, time-spanning thriller in the vein of TELL NO ONE, this adaptation of Stieg Larsson's international bestseller was the highest grossing film in Swedish history. After being set up in a libel case, disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist is hired by a wealthy industrialist to investigate the disappearance of his niece some forty years before. Nyqvist (TOGETHER) makes an effectively understated hero, but the film is stolen by newcomer Rapace as the Goth girl/genius hacker who teams up with Blomkvist to unravel a tangled skein that takes in Nazis, perverts, Biblical quotations, and the Australian outback. In Swedish and English with English subtitles. 35mm widescreen. (MR)

  3. With Michael Nyqvist, Noomi Rapace

The hunters of power brokers become the hunted in this darkly violent tale that links corruption in the highest places to the hidden past of Lisbeth Salander, one obscure loner biker-chick. Two investigative reporters on the verge of publishing an explosive exposé on European sex trafficking are found brutally murdered, and Salander’s prints are on the gun. Journalist and left-wing magazine publisher Michael Blomkvist may be willing to stake his life and career on the innocence of his former lover, but opposing forces in the highest (and lowest) places are poised for a kill. In Swedish, Italian and French with English subtitles. 35mm widescreen. (BS)

  3. With Michael Nyqvist, Noomi Rapace

Goth-girl computer hacker Lisbeth Salander is laid up with a bullet to the brain, but not before applying an ax to the head of her ex-KGB father. Journalist Michael Blomkvist leads a double life to sniff out an all-powerful secret government agency, and his women’s rights-lawyer sister jumps into the fray in defense of Lisbeth. Prostitution, drug smuggling, child molestation, insanity, rape, murder, suicide, and the creepiest sibling rivalry ever, all figure in this spectacular finale to the trilogy. Flashbacks galore will keep first-timers in tune with the action even without seeing the earlier films. In Swedish with English subtitles. 35mm widescreen. (BS)
