Cinedigm has acquired all North American rights to Night Moves, directed by Kelly Reichardt. The film, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard, made its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival earlier this month followed by a North American debut at the Toronto International Film Festival and was recently awarded the Grand Prize at the Deauville Film Festival. Cinedigm will release the film in spring of 2014.
“Kelly is one of the most original and distinctive voices in American cinema today. An expansion on her previous work, ‘Night Moves’ maintains that unique Kelly stamp that long ago made us huge fans,” said Vincent Scordino, Senior Vice President of Theatrical Releasing, for Cinedigm.
“We couldn’t be happier to be working with Cinedigm,” said the filmmakers. “Their enthusiasm for the film was amazing, and we’re thrilled to be collaborating with them on its release.”
Night Moves is Reichardt’s fifth feature film and tells the story of three radical environmentalists plotting the explosion of a hydroelectric damthe symbol of the energy-sucking, resource-devouring industrial culture they despise.
The film is a production of Maybach Film Productions, RT Features and filmscience. It was produced by Neil Kopp, Anish Savjani, Chris Maybach, Saemi Kim and Rodrigo Teixeira. You can check out a clip below.
