Check out the first clip from Anton Corbijn's Sundance thriller, "A Most Wanted Man," starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe, Daniel Bruhl and Robin Wright.

From the novel by John le Carre, the film debuted last weekend at Sundance to strong reviews. Paste calls it "extraordinarily gripping," and Hoffman's performance "wonderfully controlled." Here's the synopsis:

In A MOST WANTED MAN, a rogue German counter-terrorism expert, Gunter Bachmann (Academy Award-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman), interrogates human rights lawyer Annabel Richter (Rachel McAdams) on the whereabouts of her half-Chechen, half-Russian immigrant client, who may or may not be part a militant jihadist group in post-9/11 Hamburg.

A maverick music video director, Corbijn previously directed "The American," also a spy thriller, and Joy Division biopic "Control." Lionsgate/Roadside Attractions will handle the 2014 stateside release.
