Elite Squad 2 (Tropa De Elite 2)

Washington, D.C. Premiere Wagner Moura returns as Captain Nascimento, the most identifiable role of his career, in the sequel to José Padilha’s Elite Squad. Nascimento, now a decade older, has prospered, having become the Commander-in-Chief of Rio de Janeiro’s BOPE (Special Police Operations Battalion) and a political appointee, the Sub-Secretary of Intelligence. Through these new positions, Nascimento strengthens BOPE and cripples the drug trade further, but soon comes to the sobering realization he has aided his true enemies: corrupt cops and dirty politicians with major electoral interests. Now Nascimento’s enemies are much more dangerous; they’re on his side. With sweeping views of the city’s diverse neighborhoods, the film offers an uncompromising vision of Rio de Janeiro both as a place and as a society. Starring Wagner Moura, Irandhir Santos, André Ramiro, Pedro Van Held and Maria Ribeiro. Directed by José Padilha. Produced by Marcos Prado and José Padilha.Official Selection, 2011 Berlin International Film Festival. Official Selection, 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
