"Night Moves" movie quotes follow the suspense as three environmental activists join together for an attention-grabbing stunt that will change their lives forever. The thriller was directed by Kelly Reichardt using a screenplay she co-wrote with Jonathan Raymond. After appearing at the 70th Venice International Film Festival, "Night Moves" opened theatrically in the United States on May 30, 2014.

In "Night Moves," organic farmer Josh (Jesse Eisenberg) and black sheep Dena (Dakota Fanning) join up with a somewhat disturbed but highly trained former U.S. Marine Harmon (Peter Sarsgaard) to make a statement. Together, they plan to carry out an attack on an Oregon hydroelectric dam which will start a revolution to bring the power back to the people and the land.

But when things don't go exactly as they anticipated, the best-laid plans crumble and each find themselves in delicate situations. Eve worse, word of their actions spread around town and each face their own threats and as a result, tough decisions.

The drama film co-stars Alia Shawkat, Logan Miller, Kai Lennox and Katherine Waterston.

"Night Moves" is just one of several great films showing on Memorial Day 2014 weekend including "A Million Ways to Die in the West," "Maleficent," "Blended," "X-Men: Days of Future Past," "The Immigrant," "The Love Punch, "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, "Million Dollar Arm," "Godzilla," "Palo Alto," "Chef," "Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return Movie Quotes," "Neighbors," "Moms' Night Out," "Devil's Knot," "Belle," "Walk of Shame," and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."
