Academy Award Nominee Ethan Hawke and Noomi Rapace star in this absurd but true tale of a 1973 bank heist and hostage crisis that formed the origins of the psychological phenomenon known as "Stockholm Syndrome."

Adapted from Daniel Lang's 1974 New Yorker article, 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 (Mark Strong) from prison. One of the hostages includes Bianca (Noomi Rapace), a wife and mother of two. Negotiations with detectives hits a wall when (at the request of the Prime Minister) the police refuse to let Lars leave in a getaway car with the hostages. As hours turn into days, Lars alternates between threatening the hostages and making them feel comfortable and secure. The hostages develop an uneasy relationship with their captor, which is particularly complex for Bianca, who develops a strong bond with Lars as she witnesses his caring nature.
