Ethan Hawke, Noomi Rapace & Robert Budreau Discuss Their Film, "Stockholm"
"Stockholm" follows Lars Nystrom (Ethan Hawke), who dons a disguise to raid a central Stockholm bank. He then takes hostages in order to spring his pal Gunnar from prison. One of the hostages includes Bianca (Noomi Rapace), a wife and mother of two. As hours turn into days, Lars alternates between threatening the hostages and making them feel comfortable and secure. The film, directed and written by Robert Budreau, is based on the absurd but true 1973 bank heist and hostage crisis in Stockholm that was documented in the New Yorker as the origins of the "Stockholm Syndrome."
