Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood have talked to Monsters and Critics about their new collaboration, Into the Forest.

The apocalyptic movie, which Page produced as well as co-stars in with Wood, is based on Jean Hegland’s novel of the same name.

However, it isn’t your typical end-of-days movie.

Forget the zombie attacks or fire and brimstone, this drama from writer-director Patricia Rozema looks at the psychological side of complete loss.

It’s a story about two sisters who struggle to survive in a remote country house after a continent-wide power outage.

Page recently explained Into the Forest was a metaphor for grief. The way the sisters believe power will be restored, groceries re-stocked and things will go back to normal play into our own fears of change and impermanence — all expectations and attachments we ultimately have no control over.

They’re dealing with just an overall sense of grief, and loss of what they’ve known and what they were about to expect, which I think is just a huge part of what being alive means. Page also touches on the decision she made two years ago to come out as gay as “the best decision I’ve ever made.

I still get a little emotional talking about. I feel like a different person and I feel so lucky, so fortunate for that because that’s not the case for a lot of people who come out.”
