hanna featurette

Based on the 2011 film of the same name, the new Amazon series Hanna has the burden of taking an acclaimed film and stretching it out into a full eight-episode season. Simultaneously, star Esme Creed-Miles has the burden of stepping into the shoes first worn by Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan, putting her own spin on the titular pint-sized assassin who finds herself hunted by all manner of government officials. Amazon Prime Video has released a new Hanna featurette to mark the release of the first season on its streaming service and to delve into just how they made the anticipated TV series.

In college I was assigned to read something that argued all stories can be boiled down to a handful of classic texts. I never actually did the assignment, but when I explained to the professor I was sure the crux of the argument was merely a variation on essential lessons I’d already learned I was swiftly given an A.
