Night Moves, from celebrated filmmaker Kelly Reichardt (Wendy and Lucy), is the gripping story of three radical environmentalists coming together to execute the most intense protest of their lives: the explosion of a hydroelectric dam-the very source and symbol of the energy-sucking, resource-devouring industrial culture they despise. Harmon (Peter Sarsgaard) is a former Marine, radicalized by tours of duty overseas. His life in the military is behind him, but at heart he remains the same reckless alpha male he always was, eager for adventure, excited by the prospect of mayhem and destruction. Dena (Dakota Fanning) is a high society dropout, sickened by the consumer economy into which she was born. She's moved West and cut ties with her family, edging ever deeper into radical politics. And Josh (Jesse Eisenberg), their leader, is a self-made militant, devoted to the protection of the Earth by any means necessary. A son of the middle class who works on an organic farm, he's an intensely private person by nature and may have the deepest convictions of them all. Night Moves is a tale of suspense and a meditation on the consequences of political extremism. When do legitimate convictions truly demand illegal behaviors? And what happens to a person's idealism when they find their back against the wall? (Dir. by Kelly Reichardt, 2013, USA, 112 mins., Rated R, Cinedigm) Digital
