Kelly Reichardt is one of the finest filmmakers working in American cinema today, and her new film “Night Moves” looks to rival her 2010 masterpiece “Meek’s Cutoff” for maximum tension.
“Night Moves” concerns three radical environmentalists (Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, Peter Sarsgaard) as they plan the explosion of a hydroelectric dam. Their actions have unintended consequences, however, and it sets the three on a path of guilt and self-preservation.
The film, which is written by Reichardt and frequent co-screenwriter Jonathan Raymond, played at last year’s Venice and Toronto Film Festivals. The film was picked up by Cinedigm, and hits theaters on May 30. Watch the trailer below.
