With a trio of measured dramas under her belt — “Old Joy,” “Wendy & Lucy” and “Meek’s Cutoff” — Kelly Reichardt has established herself as a filmmaker whose storytelling is patient and considered. But when news arrived that her latest "Night Moves" would take on eco-terrorism and feature a Hollywood-ish cast with Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Petes Sarsgaard, it certainly grabbed our attention. The result? As our review out of Venice notes, a "perfect reminder that Reichardt is one of the most exciting directorial talents we have right now."

Night Moves

With a trio of measured dramas under her belt —  “Old Joy,” “Wendy & Lucy” and “Meek’s Cutoff” — Kelly Reichardt has established herself as a filmmaker whose storytelling style is patient and considered. But when news arrived that her latest "Night Moves" would take on eco-terrorism and feature a Hollywood-ish cast with Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Petes Sarsgaard, it certainly grabbed our attention. The result? As our review out of Venice notes, a "perfect reminder that Reichardt is one of the most exciting directorial talents we have right now."

And with the film now on its way to Toronto, the first clip from "Night Moves" has arrived and unsurprisingly, it's quiet and contemplative. The story itself follows three people who come together to bomb a hydroelectric dam, with the film less focused on those mechanics, than in investigating the the principles and ethics of those who participate in this kind of extreme action. It sounds like fascinating stuff, and for fans of Reichardt's past work, one that can't be missed.

There's no U.S. distributor for this one yet, so this might be your only sample of the movie for a while. Check it out below, followed a video from Venice with the director and stars chatting with press about the film.
