Stockholm trailer: Ethan Hawke robs a bank and bonds with the hostages in this crime-comedy
Stockholm stars Ethan Hawke, Naomi Rapace, Mark Strong and Thorbjorn Harr.
After the religious drama First Reformed, Ethan Hawke will be seen next in the dark comedy Stockholm. Inspired by a true event of a bank heist in 1973, the film is based on an incident which led to the coining of the phrase 'Stockholm Syndrome', a condition where hostages develop an emotional attachment with their captor.
Hawke plays Lars Nystrom, a Bob Dylan fan and petty criminal, who disguises himself as an American to rob a bank. He takes a few bank employees as his hostages to have his friend Gunnar (played by Mark Strong) freed from prison. He also demands a million dollars, specifically in American currency and "a Mustang 302 like Steve McQueen had in Bullitt."
Over the course of a few days, his hostages, including a bank clerk Bianca (played by Naomi Rapace), start to bond with him. She even turns against the police and also tries to help him escape.
The trailer for #Stockholm has arrived!
It is based on the absurd but true story of a 1973 bank heist and hostage crisis documented in the 1974 New Yorker article "The Bank Drama".
