Saoirse Ronan is the most dynamic actor of her generation, and it’s easy to see why in films like Atonement, Lady Bird, and Hanna.
In Hanna, Saoirse is unsettlingly intense while still making sure all of the brutally vulnerable moments of Hanna learning about the world truly resonate.
Cate Blanchett is an entertaining and worthy antagonist. Joe Wright directs with a Bourne-level sharpness and a great eye for framing and color. The tone could have been a bit less melodramatic at times, but not a deal breaker.
