Watch: Eisenberg & Fanning Are Eco-Terrorists in 'Night Moves' Trailer
After playing at Venice and Toronto last year, director Kelly Reichardt (Wendy and Lucy, Meek's Cutoff) has her latest film Night Moves poised for release in the United States this May. Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Peter Saarsgard star in the film as a trio of environmental activists who plan an action of eco-terrorism. More specifically, they're looking to blow up a dam. But this isn't a standard thriller, because it's the aftermath of this plan that really propels the story and lets us soak in these characters. This doesn't look like anything mind-blowing, but these three together have at least piqued my interest. Watch!
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?
