Film details


In this stealthy political thriller a radical environmentalist (Eisenberg) and society drop-out (Fanning) drive halfway across Oregon and meet with an ex-marine (Sarsgaard) to execute a meticulously planned act of eco-terrorism.

Reichardt’s films are always laced with astute observations about politics, gender and class and this urgent, absorbing film amplifies the political, making it central to the narrative thrust.
