Into the Forest will leave you wondering….what would I do?
I can honestly say I haven't watched a movie recently that held me glued to the TV and my seat. The story itself is one you can't imagine having to live. The actors in this movie did an outstanding job playing their parts. At times during the movie, I felt like I was with them which made me wonder what I would have done in their situation.
Ellen Page (Best Actress, Juno, 2007) and Golden Globe® nominee Evan Rachel Wood star as sisters fighting for survival during a west coast power outage. This isn't any average power outage but you will have to watch this just to see how long it lasts.
My heart ached for the way they had to live and again made me wonder how I would cope under those circumstances.
I never like to give away a movie's story because then what fun would it be for you? This movie comes to DVD and Blu-ray on 10/4, make sure you grab yourself a copy if you like adventure, uncertainty and enjoy rooting for the characters in the movie. They will steal your heart and make you wonder too, what would you do?
