2014 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Kelly Reichardt’s Night Moves

And for the final Sundance Film Festival prediction on the 80-list, I’m selecting a film that might have premiered at both Venice and Toronto, but from my notes, has yet to make an appearance on U.S. soil. Apart from 2008’s Wendy and Lucy, Kelly Reichardt debuted River of Grass (1994), Old Joy (2006) and grabbed a Spotlight showing for Meek’s Cutoff in 2011. The Cinedigm folks grabbed Night Moves and planned a Spring ’14 release – perhaps they’ll want to roll it out at Sundance beforehand.

Gist: Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard, this tells the story of three radical environmentalists plotting the explosion of a hydroelectric dam—the symbol of the energy-sucking, resource-devouring industrial culture they despise.

Production Co./Producers: Neil Kopp, Anish Savjani, Chris Maybach, Saemi Kim and Rodrigo Teixeira

Prediction: Spotlight section

U.S. Distributor: Cinedigm
