A heart-stopping night-time trip downriver with three environmental activists, on a mission to destroy a hydroelectric dam in Southern Oregon. The contrasting motives and attitudes of the trio are beautifully sketched out, with Dakota Fanning, Jesse Eisenberg and Peter Sarsgaard creating an electricity that grips throughout. As the tale unfolds, their idealism is fiercely tested and notions of guilt and loyalty begin to bite with venom.

Quietly amassing a brilliant and distinctive body of work, Kelly Reichardt continues to explore questions of resistance and survival in North America. Following the pared-down western Meek’s Cut-off (screened at Flatpack 2011), Night Moves is Reichardt’s most accessible film yet and confirms her place as one of the most fascinating filmmakers working today.
