Your Book Group, the People in Your Oscar Pool, or Basically Anyone Else That can See an R-Rated Movie: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Billions of people read the Stieg Larsson novel, and many stayed on to watch the Swedish movie starring Noomi Rapace. But if there’s room in your heart for one more run with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, you may be rewarded. Delivered via Oscar-nominated The Social Network director David Fincher, the film stars Bedford native Rooney Mara (she’s the one who has the amazing break-up, kiss-off scene in the beginning of The Social Network). Trailers call it “The Feel-Bad Movie of Christmas,” but I’m sure they mean that in the best way possible.
