Eastern Promises

The mysterious and charismatic Russian-born Nikolai Luzhin (Viggo Mortensen) is a driver for one of London's most notorious organized crime families of Eastern European origin. Nikolai's carefully maintained existence is jarred once he crosses paths at with Anna Khitrova (Naomi Watts), a midwife at a North London hospital. Anna is deeply affected by the desperate situation of a young teenager who dies while giving birth to a baby. Anna resolves to try to trace the baby's lineage and relatives. Anna's mother Helen does not discourage her, but Anna's irascible Russian-born uncle Stepan urges caution. He is right to do so; by delving into the girl's past, Anna unwittingly stumbles into a Russian police operation that seeks to expose a major Eastern mafia prostitution ring. trailer optionsquicktime: low med highwindows: low med highrealplayer: low med high
