Movies sure like the idea of a world after an apocalypse, and now it’s Ellen Page & Evan Rachel Wood’s turn to head for a wasteland, near-future world with Into The Forest. The film debuted at the end of last year at the Toronto International Film Festival to pretty good reviews, and now we have a trailer.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Set in the near future, this riveting and suspenseful apocalyptic drama follows two sisters, Nell (Ellen Page) and Eva (Evan Rachel Wood) who live in the Pacific Northwest with their kindly father, Robert. Nell is focused on her studies and Eva is training to be a dancer, but their peaceful lives are disrupted one day by what turns out to be a continent-wide blackout. Whereas at first the family bond together and try to make the most of their difficult circumstances, as time gone on, the challenges become more serious. In the wake of a shocking and violent confrontation that Robert has with a menacing passerby, the sisters must work together in order to survive in their increasingly treacherous new world.’
The movie will be released in the US this summer. Take a look at the trailer below. [Read more…]
