Night Moves
Night Moves Blu-ray Disc - 2014 | Blu-ray edition.

Not to be confused with the 1970s Gene Hackman or the Bob Seger song. There should be a movie called "Nightmoves: The Bob Seger Story." Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, and Peter Sarsgaard star as environmental activists (Some may prefer terrorists.), who blow up a dam. However, the story is less about that and more about the aftermath and the consequences, especially for Eisenberg and Fanning, who work at a cooperative farm. If you've seen any of Kelly Reichardt's films ("Wendy and Lucy," "Meek's Cutoff," "Certain Women"), who know she works slowly and deliberately, and it doesn't seem entirely fair to call her films boring. It's a good subject and the film and performances are understated. Alia Shakwat, Katherine Waterston, and James Le Gros have small parts. Filmed in Oregon.
