In this thriller written and directed by Luc Besson (The Big Blue, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets), a young Russian woman tries to escape a life of domestic abuse by joining the KGB and becoming an assassin.

Years later, in an attempt to change careers, she becomes a double agent for the CIA - but soon realises she's entangled in the deep web of international espionage.

Rotten Tomatoes's critics' consensus says: "Beneath Anna Poliatova's striking beauty lies a secret that will unleash her indelible strength and skill to become one of the world's most feared government assassins. An electrifying thrill ride unfolding with propulsive energy, startling twists and breathtaking action, Anna introduces Sasha Luss in the title role with a star-studded cast including Academy Award Winner Helen Mirren, Cillian Murphy, and Luke Evans."
