Following up her spare, stellar western Meek’s Cutoff, one of America’s finest independent directors, Kelly Reichardt, entered into perhaps unexpected territory by crafting an eco-terrorist thriller. Night Moves, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard, premiered at Venice Film Festival before stopping by Toronto last fall, receiving strong acclaim along the way.
Now, ahead of a May release, we have the first trailer. Coming from France, where it arrives next month, it’s a compelling look into the story of three radical environmentalists plotting the explosion of a hydroelectric dam—the symbol of the energy-sucking, resource-devouring industrial culture they despise. Check it out below, along with new stills and poster.
Night Moves hits U.S. theaters on May 30th via Cinedigm.
