Evan Rachel Wood on ‘Into the Forest’
Patricia Rozema’s Into the Forest tackles many of our dystopian fears in a world that’s on the brink of an apocalypse. But you won’t find any zombies here. Instead, the film stars Evan Rachel Wood and Ellen Page as two young sisters who do their best to survive in their home in a secluded ancient forest.
