Into the Forest

“Into the Forest,” starring Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood, has raked in the highest reviews for the week on Rotten Tomatoes.

The apocalyptic thriller follows two sisters, portrayed by Page and Wood, who must survive in the wilderness during a worldwide power outage.

With 29 reviews so far, “Into the Forest” has a 76 percent rating on RT. The thriller takes the lead over the comedy “Bad Moms,” which features a cast of Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Jada Pinkett Smith and Christina Applegate. Tied for third best reviewed is “Jason Bourne” and “Nerve” with a 57 percent ranking on RT as of publication.

“Into the Forest” is a post-apocalyptic disaster movie without a single visual effect,” Madison Movie critic, Rob Thomas, wrote. “No explosions, no zombies, no mobs rioting in the streets. There’s just quiet, and dark.”

Oliver Jones of New York Observer concurred, saying, “[‘Into the Forest’ is] one of the more intimate and thoughtful takes on the post-apocalypse in cinematic memory.”

Directed and written by Patricia Rozema, “Into the Forest” premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2015 and was released in the U.S. on Friday. The film also won “Best Feature Film” at the 2016 Imagine Film Festival and was nominated for the Canadian Screen Awards, Leo Awards and the Directors Guild of Canada Craft Award
