Saw Night Moves (terrible name) last week on Amazon Prime. Wendy and Lucy is interesting as well. There's a humanness and truth about her films.
The name of the boat was "Night Moves".
The dam they filmed at was actually Galesville Reservoir. My sister in law and brother in law used to live just a few miles down the road from the reservoir. Interestingly, in the film they call it Lake of Woods, which exists but is a natural lake, and later they call it Green Peter Lake, which does have a dam similar to the one in the film. In the scene near the beginning where they go through the cyclone fence, that sign in the background exists there, but they put text over it to change the name.
I don't disagree about the film's name. A different one could be much better.
Old Joy and Wendy & Lucy are rather bizarre to watch because the magic of movie making does some strange things with locations. Similar surreal effect watching Paranoid Park or My Own Private Idaho!
It's interesting when a geography you know so well ends up in a film. I know that the boat was called Night Moves. My objection to the title may be irrational...forgetting the Seger song, there was a 1975 film called Night Moves with Gene Hackman. When I first came across that Reinhardt Night Moves on a streaming service, I passed over it. Thought it looked terrible from the cover design and name. When I found out it was Reinhardt I jumped on it.
are attempting to rekindle their old friendship. I re-watched it several times and g0t new meaning each one. Prince Bonnie William plays one lead and is effortlessly natural. Highly recommended.
