“Breathtakingly tense”

“…has a devastating accuracy about the thin line between ordinary behavior and the unthinking promulgation of terror”
Sight & Sound

“Never preachy or polemical and always supremely refined and pure.”
Little White Lies

Reichardt ratchets up the suspense in this gripping-yet-deceptive eco-thriller which sees three radical environmental activists (Peter Sarsgaard, Dakota Fanning, and Jesse Eisenberg in his career’s best performance) execute the blow up of a hydroelectric dam — and soon find themselves drowning in the moral maelstrom of its waters.

Presented in conjunction with Kelly Reichardt’s latest film, SHOWING UP, which opens April 14.
