Night Moves

Sun, Aug 16 / 8 pm
Sat, Aug 22 / 8:30 pm
Directed by Kelly Reichardt
2013, USA, 112 min

Night Moves follows three passionate environmentalists whose homegrown plot to blow up a controversial dam unravels into a journey of doubt, paranoia and unintended consequences. Set against the threatened natural beauty of Oregon, the film tracks quiet organic farmer Josh, high society dropout Dena, and adrenaline-driven ex-Marine Harmon as they prepare, carry out, and then experience the shocking fallout of what they hoped would be an attention-grabbing act of sabotage. As the tension mounts, the film touches on provocative moral questions about the underside of idealism and the modern collision of values and violence. But the story also veers increasingly inward, into the maelstrom of remorse, fear and panic that seeps through Josh, Dena and Harmon’s lives.

Please read our new safety disclaimer prior to joining us at the theatre.

Reviews

This is mesmerically assured and tensile filmmaking, with two complex and plausible performances at its core, and the shin-stinging kick of a Chaucerian moral fable.
– Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
Here’s how good a filmmaker Kelly Reichardt is. She can pack an entire movie’s worth of meaning into a sliver of onscreen space, and do it so subtly that even attentive viewers might miss the trick.
– Adam Nayman, BFI
It’s a richly engrossing drama, so long as you understand that its aiming for the head, not the gut.
– Michael O’Sullivan, The Washington Post
