Evan Rachel Wood, Max Minghella and Ellen Page from Into the Forest

Based on a 1997 bestselling novel by Jean Hegland about the women literally plunged into darkness in the Pacific Northwest, clinging to hope as they fight off starvation, disease an intruders,  the movie became a labor of love for producer-star Ellen Page, who came upon the book by happenstance.

“I was actually in the store that I love in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where I’m from, and the woman working there (whom) I would see often is like: ‘Hey, there’s this great book. You should read it because I think it would make a great movie,’” recalls Page. “And so I did, and I was like: Yes, it would make a good movie.”
