Admittedly, I had a very limited understanding prior to seeing “Starred Up” yesterday, as I had only seen one trailer before. I knew it was supposed to be a gritty prison drama, which it was… And I had no idea what the title actually meant. Well, now I know and knowing is half the battle.
Jesse Eisenberg, Peter Sarsgaard and Dakota Fanning in an indie thriller as environmentalists who take matters into their own hands and plot to blow up a dam… Directed by Kelly Reichardt, “Night Moves” might be one of the independent films to look forward to this year and the cast alone would be enough of a reason to check it out. On that note, I think it would be the first time to see Dakota Fanning on the big screen since she was that whiny little girl in Steven Spielberg’s “War of the Worlds” (I know she was in the “Twilight”, but I couldn’t care less about watching those films).
“Night Moves” opens on the 30th of May in the US and on the 29th of August in the UK. It also plays during Tribeca Film Festival this year in April.
Side note: I hope it’s going to be better than “The East”. What a disappointment that film was…
