Trailer For Night Moves Creeps Online
Kelly Reichardt’s river of the dammed

Following her brilliant wagon-train Western Meek’s Cutoff, Kelly Reichardt’s latest project is Night Moves, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Peter Skarsgard. With strong advance word from the festival circuit, the first trailer has just arrived online.

As you’ll have gathered, Night Moves is an eco-thriller of sorts, but with an emphasis on slow-burning suspense rather than high-octane pyrotechnics. We wouldn’t really have expected the latter from the director who also gave us Wendy And Lucy.

The plot here involves Eisenberg, Fanning and Skarsgard’s meticulous preparations to bomb a hydro-electric dam, but there are interpersonal problems among the trio, and their plan takes an unexpected turn…

Empire’s own Damon Wise caught it in Venice last year, and pronounced it “an alt-thriller that ripples with tension, paranoia and atmosphere”.

The polymath Reichardt wrote and edited in addition to her behind the camera duties. Night Moves had its UK premiere at the Glasgow Film Festival last month, and gets its full release here on August 29. We’ll next see Eisenberg in Richard Ayoade’s The Double, which arrives on April 4.
