Jesse Eisenberg's Eco-Terrorism Thriller 'Night Moves' Gets US Trailer
After an international trailer for the indie that played festivals in Toronto and Venice arrived last week, the theatrical domestic trailer for Night Moves has arrived as well. Jesse Eisenberg stars in the film about three different people (including Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard) who come together to bomb a hydroelectric dam. But the film ventures into the moral and ethical dilemmas they face, and seemingly the shifting dynamics among them, after their act of terror unfolds. It looks like a slow-burn, but surely a unique story with a tone that we might not otherwise get from a studio film. Maybe worth a look. Watch!
Here's the official US trailer for Kelly Reichardt's Night Moves, originally from Yahoo:
Night Moves is directed by Kelly Reichardt and written by Jonathan Raymond, both of who collaborated on Wendy and Lucy and Meek's Cutoff. The film follows three clandestine activists scheming to blow up a dam — and the ways their lives unravel in the aftermath. Josh (Jesse Eisenberg), Dena (Dakota Fanning), and Harmon (Peter Sarsgaard) are meant to perform their act of eco-terror and then go their separate ways. But when the full results of their actions come to light, a clean getaway may prove more elusive than they'd anticipated. The film played festivals in Toronto and Venice and Cinedigm releases it on May 30th. Well?

This film was made at the same time as he East but has had harder time with distribution cause its Kelly and her films are atypical. Distributirs have a hard time with unusual artisst who arent already hip and popular. The East was great but it was pretty straight forward genre piece. You can be sure this one does not follow the thriller genre the trailer is trying to sell it. Hence there will be "disappointments"... Carruth had a lot to say about the Hollywood marketing problem.

Although I appreciate this woman's work, I've never really been able to say I like her films. They are intelligent and serious works, but they somehow just don't hit the mark for me. Good for her though, as there are not many who make such individual and intelligent films. I just wish I could like them more than I do. Beats the usual Hollywood junk mill stuff though.
