Featuring an excellent international cast, Scarlett Johansson is Major, the first of her kind with a sleek cyber body housing a human spirit, programmed to be a soldier who can stop the world’s worst criminals; Juliette Binoche plays her creator, Beat Takeshi Kitano is her boss, and Pilou Asbæk is her cohort. Just as Major takes on an evil cyber terrorist she discovers a truth about her past that consumes her.
