The Art of Self-Defence centres around Casey Davies (Jesse Eisenberg), who is attacked at random on the street, and so enlists in a local dojo, led by a charismatic and mysterious Sensei (Alessandro Nivola), in an effort to learn how to defend himself.
Eisenberg rarely puts a foot wrong, and this looks like a great film and I can’t wait to see it.
The Art of Self-Defence is released in the US on June 21st, but as of yet, there’s no UK date.
