The Girl who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest

Film Society Evenings are held on the last Wednesday of every month, tickets are only $10 from Regent Cinema. Join us for a coffee and a discussion at the Ashburton Art Gallery following: The Girl who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest – Wednesday 26th January 5.45pm, all welcome.

“The Girl who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest is based on the best selling novel of the same name by the late Swedish author Stieg Larsson, the third and final entry in his Millennium Trilogy. The Girl who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest has everything you would expect- pulse-racing escape scenes, eye-wateringly violent encounters and an over-arching intelligence that keeps its central investigations authentic.

Lisbeth Salander is plotting her revenge against the man who tried to kill her, and against the government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life. However, it is not going to be a straightforward mission. After taking a bullet to the head, Salander is under close supervision in intensive care, and is set to face trial for three murders and one attempted murder on her eventual release.

With the help of journalist Mikael Blomkvist and his researchers at Millennium Magazine, Salander must not only prove her innocence, but identify and denounce the corrupt politicians that have allowed the vulnerable to become victims of abuse and violence. Once a victim herself, Salander is now ready to fight back.” -Flicks.co.nz
