From writer-director Kelly Reichardt (Old Joy, Wendy & Lucy, Meek's Cutoff) comes this tense and moody thriller about two Oregon-based environmental activists (Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning) who team up with a destructive ex-Marine (Peter Sarsgaard) to plot the bombing of a hydroelectric dam.

A slow-burning suspense thriller..directed by Reichardt with the concision and elegance of a chess master. – Dana Stevens, Slate

Night Moves is like a slow, meticulous heist movie, almost hypnotic in its precision. – Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times

Reichardt's feeling for the weight and the palpability of the world, and for continuity within sequences, has become masterly. – David Denby, New Yorker

The influence of early Alfred Hitchcock is all over this movie, translated in unusual and original fashion. – Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com
