Introduction and Q&A with director Patricia Rozema!

Acclaimed filmmaker Patricia Rozema (Mansfield ParkI’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing) returns to the big screen with this gripping story about two sisters (Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood) who must fend for themselves after a massive power outage throws North America into chaos. Hidden away at their family’s remote country house, Nell and Eva gradually become aware of the severity of their situation, as the blackout continues and supplies dwindle. Page and Wood offer powerful and nuanced performances as young women forced to re-examine their place in the world and their relationship with the land, their home, and each other. Rozema offers a fresh and potent take on the apocalyptic thriller, exposing the vulnerabilities of our modern world while bringing a humanistic approach to her film’s fearsome vision of an all-too-plausible future.
