Director: Kelly Reichardt. Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, Peter Sarsgaard. 112 min. Rated R. Drama/Thriller.
Based on bizarre theories ("... hundreds of salmons are killed to power up an iPad"), three nerdy environmentalists plan a terrorist attack to explode a dam, with consequences that apparently are only unknown to the protagonists, as the massive risks of blowing up dams are quite obvious. Well-directed drama with nicely-spaced moments of nail-biting suspense, starring Jesse Eisenberg (currently the "go-to guy" for nerdy characters) has an anti-climactic ending that leaves the viewer hanging - as expected from the artsy director of Wendy and Lucy.
