A little less than a week after the release of the French trailer for “Night Moves,” Cinedigm has followed it up with its American counterpart, and if anything, it’s even more tense than the last one.
“Night Moves” follows three radical environmentalists, leader Josh (Jesse Eisenberg), his loyal follower Dena (Dakota Fanning) and former Marine Harmon (Peter Sarsgaard), as they plan to blow up a hydroelectric dam. The three all want to restore power to nature, but when the question of collateral damage comes up, they’re a little less in tune with each other.
“Night Moves” was directed by the great neo-neo-realist director Kelly Reichardt, the filmmaker behind “Old Joy,” “Wendy and Lucy” and “Meek’s Cutoff,” and debuted last fall at the Venice Film Festival before playing at TIFF. Reichardt co-wrote the film with frequent collaborator Jonathan Raymond, and the film looks to show the same kind of tightly-wound, slow-burning suspense that Reichardt demonstrated in “Meek’s Cutoff.” Read Indiewire’s review of the film here and watch the trailer below.
