Night Moves

{4.5/5} “Cutthroat trout… They like to fight, they like to jump. Sometimes they break free. I respect that in a fish.”

Night Moves, released in 2013

Dena, Josh, and Harmon are radical environmentalists who are planning on blowing up a dam. They buy a boat, and they buy a lot of ammonium nitrate fertilizer. They will leave the boat at the dam on Sunday, rigged to blow, and then get out and go to work on Monday.

It’s slow paced but interesting. It’s a different story than you’ve seen before — you don’t know what’s going to happen.

It’s pretty serious. It’s about what happens when your actions with good intentions lead to things you don’t expect.

Stars Dakota Fanning, Jesse Eisenberg, and Peter Sarsgaard. Directed by Kelly Reichardt (Wendy and Lucy). The atmospheric music is by Jeff Grace.
