Ellen Page & Evan Rachel Wood’s have finally done a movie together.
It’s a post-apocalyptic stories but with a twist. Into the Forest is an introspective look about how the end of the world affects two sisters living in the middle of the woods.
The film stars Page and Wood as said sisters, and, based on the first trailer, this is going to be an emotional roller coaster high on the suspense and the solitude.
The film was directed by Canadian filmmaker Patricia Rozema, who was the writer and director behind underrated Jane Austen adaptation Mansfield Park.
Into the Forest also stars Max Minghella, Callum Keith Rennie, Michael Eklund, and Wendy Crewson.
Check out the trailer…
Here’s the official 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.
Into the Forest will be available on DirecTV on June 23rd and in theatres on July 29th.
