Josh and Dena, two young environmental activists, are planning a large scale act to force the world to think about what they're doing to the environment. They pull in Harmon, a man with a sketchy past, to help them pull off their big plan. However, unforeseen consequences bring a whole host of guilt, paranoia and other problems, and their ultimate act will change themselves more than the world around them.Written by
Director Kelly Reichardt first intended to shoot the close scene of the driver changing his tire, when the leads are about lo leave the dam side after putting the bomb. But Reichardt should have lost the protagonist perspective if her camera had been close to the car driver, three hundred yards from the lead characters. So she dropped the idea. See more »
Lake of the Woods (Oregon) is a natural lake, and does not have a dam as portrayed in the film. (Galesville Reservoir, which is 100 miles from Lake of the Woods, was used for filming) See more »

Acting is good but the movie was really lacking something to make an impact on me. Not terrible but slow and methodical.
"One person, that's all it takes." Josh (Eisenberg) and Dena (Fanning) are young environmentalists who are sick of watching the planet get destroyed. Along with a man named Harmon they come up with a plan to blow up a hydro-electric dam as a protest to what is happening. There are a few bumps but for the most part things go according to plan. When the papers the next day report something unexpected the three protesters become scared and trust is challenged. I wasn't sure what to expect from this at all but I was hoping for a movie like The East. That movie was very tense and I really enjoyed it, kinda like an Erin Brokovich on steroids. This one was not like that. On the other hand though I think this one is more realistic. This one deals with three people who are not affiliated with any organization who try to make a big statement but it doesn't go has planned. No one is a loud mouth or draws attention to themselves which is good for what they are doing, but not for a movie. This is very slow and has very little dialog. The movie isn't bad but never quite gets as tense and suspenseful as needed. Acting is good but the movie was really lacking something to make an impact on me. Overall, not terrible but slow and methodical. Almost too slow to stay focused on. I give this a B-.
