Director Kelly Reichardt will discuss and show clips from her new film Night Moves, which opens in limited release on May 30.
Set against the ravishing, threatened natural beauty of Oregon, the film tracks step by relentless step as quiet organic farmer Josh (Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network), high-society dropout Dena (Dakota Fanning, War of the Worlds, the Twilight saga), and adrenaline-driven ex-Marine Harmon (Peter Sarsgaard, Blue Jasmine) prepare, carry out, and then experience the shocking fallout of what they hoped would be an attention-grabbing act of sabotage. Feeling they have been pushed to the limit by disregard for the local ecosystem, the trio is about to see their own personal limits tested. American landscapes and narratives of the road are themes that run throughout director Kelly Reichardt’s films (River of Grass, Old Joy, Wendy and Lucy, Meek’s Cutoff), and now she brings her distinctive voice to the thriller genre.
