Description

"A disquietingly beautiful, deeply intelligent thriller about radical activism and its consequences— both material and moral—in 21st century America." - The Atlantic

"An impressive piece of neo-noir filmmaking. Hitchcock and Highsmith would have approved." - James Verniere, Boston Herald

One of the premiere voices in independent cinema, Kelly Reichardt earned her renown on the industry's periphery, working with skeletal resources to craft singular works of poetic realism, each of them arrestingly intimate yet infused with political commentary. NIGHT MOVES marks a significant step deeper into political drama. The film follows three clandestine activists scheming to blow up a dam. 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. Perhaps it is best to think of NIGHT MOVES as Reichardt's personal spin on a genre—but which genre? The film slips seamlessly from a suspenseful thriller into a tale of moral consequence. Only a filmmaker as adept at tone as Reichardt could make such a transition so fluidly. And only a filmmaker with Reichardt's integrity could keep us so captivated, questioning our sympathies and wondering how to navigate our political conscience in troubled times.
