Here’s the official synopsis for The Equalizer:
Robert McCall is deadly, but doesn’t look it. As played by Denzel Washington, he is quiet, reserved, and methodical. He sits at the same table in the same diner for his meals each day. He lines up his cutlery just so. He tries not to talk to strangers. But there’s something about Elina (Chloë Grace Moretz, also appearing at the Festival in Clouds of Sils Maria and Laggies) that breaks through Bob’s barriers. She crashes into his diner in a clearly desperate state. She works as an escort, in thrall to a Russian crime gang not known for their gentle ways. As Bob’s protective impulse begins to extend to the ragged, volatile Elina, it’s only a matter of time before he puts his lethal skills to use. Because Bob is The Equalizer.
