Storyline

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 Anne Campbell

Goofs

In the opening scenes of the film, Josh and Dena are shown at Lake of the Woods, which is in southern Oregon. Later in the film, when they are heading to the lake with the boat, they mention that they will have to put in "upstream at Lake of the Woods". The following morning, Josh asks what is going on as people are reading the news, and it is said that "Someone blew up Green Peter Dam last night", and later when Josh is at the library, the news article mentions Green Peter Dam, and the Santiam River, which Green Peter Dam impounds to form Green Peter Lake. Green Peter Dam is outside of Sweet Home, and is over 100 miles from Lake of the Woods. See more »

Better than I expected
21 July 2015 | by sfdphdSee all my reviews

To appreciate this film, you have to be prepared for the work of Kelly Reichart, whose films tend to be slow-moving and thought-provoking. You have to be in the mood for that type of experience. For this particular film you also have to be prepared for an emotional reaction to the story of several people who take political action, violent action, and suffer its human costs.

Anyone who was young during the 1960's and 1970's will remember what it was like to debate those political issues. We all had to decide whether we were willing to take action in which someone might get hurt. Or in the jargon of Star Trek, does the life of one outweigh the life of many? It's a question we still grapple with today.

If you are willing to confront those questions, and your own answers, this film will interest you. If you don't like to think about such things, skip this film and watch something more superficial.
