Josh (Eisenberg) is an eco-activist, who, along with his girlfriend Dena (Fanning) joins forces with former Marine Harmon (Sarsgaard), to blow up a hydroelectric dam in the forests of Oregon. Led by the meticulous Josh, the three gain fake IDs and hire a speedboat to carry out their mission with exacting precision. But as the authorities close in, the trio has to individually deal with the consequences of their actions.
This intelligent thriller – from the director of Wendy and Lucy and Meek’s Cutoff – explores the consequences of political activism and the corruption of principles.
“*A hushed and coiled thriller in which the characters struggle to find the line between civilisation and nature, conviction and crime.*” ★★★★The Guardian
