INTO THE FOREST
2016, 101 min, Canada, Dir: Patricia Rozema

Director Patricia Rozema’s adaptation of the Jean Hegland novel offers a look at the collapse of civilization that’s not driven by special effects or zombies. Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood play sisters living an idyllic life in their forest home when the power goes out for good; the two must rely on each other more than ever as they struggle to survive. “Beautiful and sensitive to character but gripping when it needs to be.” - John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter.
