Child 44 movie quotes tell the story of one man who investigates the serial murders of 44 children in spite of resistance from the Soviet Government. The mystery thriller was adapted from Tom Rob Smith's novel of the same name by Richard Price. Directed by Daniel Espinosa, Child 44 opened in theaters on April 17, 2015.

In Child 44, secret police agent Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy) and his wife, Raisa (Noomi Rapace), find themselves exiled from Moscow in 1953 after Leo refuses to declare Raisa as a traitor. So when the son of friend Alexei (Fares Fares) is murdered and the government, led by Vasili Nikitin (Joel Kinnaman), declares it an accident as murder does not happen in their land, Leo sees little to lose by jumping in to investigate it.

Leo, along with the help of General Timur Nesterov (Gary Oldman), begins to investigate the killing and discovers that a serial killer has killed a total of 44 children. He strives to find the killer so he will not kill any more, but faces intimidation from the government, who tries to cover it up. This presents a very tricky and dangerous situation for all involved.

Child 44 joins theaters which are already showing a number of great films including Ex Machina, The Longest Ride, Furious 7, Cut Bank and Get Hard.
