Top 100 Most Anticipated Films of 2013: #21. Kelly Reichardt’s Night Moves

Night Moves

Director/Writer: Kelly Reichardt
Producer(s): Saemi Kim, Neil Kopp, Chris Maybach, Anish Savjani, Rodrigo Teixeira
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Dakota Fanning, Jesse Eisenberg, Peter Sarsgaard

Unlike other critics who adore her previous efforts such as Old Joy and Wendy and Lucy, I think it’s Meek’s Cutoff where I became officially smitten by the talent of West Coast auteur Kelly Reichardt. I think she might make ripples into waves again this year – let’s hope this lawsuit gets thrown out.

Gist: A drama centered on three environmentalists who plot to blow up a dam.

Release Date: Currently filming, I think this will take the same route that Meek’s did – Venice, TIFF and NYFF.
