Eastern Promises

Indies in the Awards Mix

Coin: Funded by a mix of U.K. and Canadian sources; Focus Features handled foreign sales and domestic release.

Buzz: Viggo Mortensen, as the Russian mob infiltrator, and Armin Mueller-Stahl, as the nasty mob partriarch, have received most of the attention since the pic’s Toronto bow. David Cronenberg also enjoyed a multitude of back-pats, as “Promises” is being called the genre helmer’s most accessible effort yet.

Kudos: People’s Choice Award at Toronto.
