    Loft Film Fest presents: “”The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest””

    Stieg Larsson’s Millenium Trilogy began with “”The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”” and became a worldwide bestselling book instantly. The film adaptation of the final installment in his trilogy, “”The Girl who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest,”” comes to the Loft Cinema this Thursday for a special sneak preview as part of the Loft’s Film Fest. “”The Girl who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest”” stars Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander, the introverted, punky protagonist of Larsson’s trilogy and the elusive “”Girl.”” In this final chapter, maverick detective Salander’s life has been upturned; she has been accused of triple homicide and must fight to prove her innocence.
