Here’s the first look at the poster for the Kelly Reichardt directed movie Night Movies which stars Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning & Peter Sarsgaard. The film is is a tale of suspense and a meditation on the consequences of political extremism. When do legitimate convictions truly demand illegal behaviours? What happens to a person’s political principles when they find their back against the wall? We’ll find out on 29th August when the movie is released in the UK.

NIGHT MOVES is the story of three radical environmentalists coming together to execute the most intense protest of their lives: the explosion of a hydroelectric dam—the very source
and symbol of the energy-sucking, resource-devouring industrial culture theydespise. Harmon (Sarsgaard) is a former Marine, radicalized by tours of duty overseas. His life in the military is behind him, but at heart he remains the same reckless alpha male he always was, eager for adventure, excited by the prospect of mayhem and destruction. Dena (Fanning) is a high society dropout, sickened by the consumer economy into which she was born. She’s moved west and cut ties with her family, edging ever deeper into radical politics. And Josh (Eisenberg), their leader, is a self-made militant, devoted to the protection of the Earth by any means necessary. A son of the middle class who works on an organic farm, he’s an intensely private person by nature and may have the deepest convictions of them all.
