In an isolated house in the woods, a widower (Callum Keith Rennie) lives with his daughters Nellie "Nell" (Ellen Page) and Eva (Evan Rachel Wood). When there is a power outage in the area, they have problems to get fuel and supplies in the nearby town. Soon there is a general power outage and the family stays isolated without means of transportation. Out of the blue, the man has an accident with a chainsaw and dies. Now the two girls have to learn how to survive in the wilderness.
"Into the Forest" is one of the most boring and stupid films recently released. The performances are good but the situations are impressively absurd. There is no explanation for the power outage. The girls have just five liters of fuel, and one of them wants a share to use in the generator to listen to music and dance. The same girl is raped and prefers to bring a baby to a world without any perspective. Leaving the house in the rain to deliver the baby inside a tree is ridiculous. But burning their house to the ground because of the smell to stay in the rain with a baby, food, books and pictures and improvise a camping tent in a tree is absolutely nonsense. My vote is three.
In a world that is increasingly dependent on electricity, a power outage seems like an awful predicament. Mankind is using electricity for the past 140 years, but still, we can't imagine ourselves living in a world deprived of electricity. In such a difficult and dreary situation found themselves a father and his two daughters, after a seemingly normal power outage lingered on, changing the lives of everyone in the region. What was the reason for this outage? Is it regional, or does it affect the whole country? No one really knows and as time passes, the family will have to put to the test its survival skills, adaptability and endurance, but most of all, the integrity of the familial bonds.
