Tom Hardy's Russian accent is really something
Set in 1953 Soviet Union, Child 44 looks seems a grim, tense thriller starring (British) Tom Hardy as secret police agent Leo Demidov, (Swedish) Noomi Rapace as his wife Raisa, and (English) Gary Oldman as General Mikhail Nesterov, who join forces on a "quest for justice" "to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys" while navigating "a system-wide cover-up."
Looks girm. And tense. And thrilling. And it's like, "make a Jersey accent heavy enough and it'll be like Russian."
Child 44 is directed by Daniel Espinosa, based Tom Rob Smiths' book by the same name, inspired by the crimes of Andrei Chikatilo aka the Rostov Ripper, the Butcher of Rostov, and the Red Ripper.
