Watch: Ellen Page & Evan Rachel Wood Get Post-Apocalyptic In First Trailer For 'Into The Forest'

Canadian filmmaker Patricia Rozema has eclectic resume, ranging from her breakout “I’ve Heard The Mermaids Singing,” to the romantic drama “When Night Is Falling,” to the Jane Austen adaptation “Mansfield Park,” to the family film “Kit Kittredge: An American Girl.” Now she’s taking another stylistic turn with “Into The Forest,” based on the book by Jean Hegland, and the first trailer has landed.

Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood lead the movie playing sisters who struggle to survive when a massive power outage throws the world into chaos. Here’s the synopsis from TIFF, where the film premiered last fall:

Acclaimed filmmaker Patricia Rozema 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. 

Our review of the film noted that it “turns a profoundly human eye to what just may be the very end of humanity itself,” and paired with strong performers in the leads roles, that’s a pretty healthy endorsement. “Into The Forest” opens this summer. Watch the trailer above.
