You may have caught our podcast where we were delightful surprised with Promised Land, and if you did, you know that you should really catch it while its in theaters. Don’t let the subject throw you off, this is no preachy, political film. It’s not only a fun film, but it pulls you along with the sure hand we expect from Gus Van Sant.
To help celebrate the film, and persuade you into theaters, I have a very cool giveaway for you. Not only can you win a $25 Visa card to cover your night out to see the film, but you can take home another Van Sant favorite, Good Will Hunting. See full details below.
Promised Land is the new contemporary drama directed by Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Milk). Matt Damon plays Steve Butler, an ace corporate salesman who is sent along with his partner, Sue Thomason (Frances McDormand), to close a key rural town in his company’s expansion plans.
With the town having been hit hard by the economic decline of recent years, the two outsiders see the local citizens as likely to accept their company’s offer, for drilling rights to their properties, as much-needed relief. What seems like an easy job for the duo becomes complicated by the objection of a respected schoolteacher (Hal Holbrook) with support from a grassroots campaign led by another man (John Krasinski), as well as the interest of a local woman (Rosemarie DeWitt).
Promised Land explores America at the crossroads where big business and the strength of small-town community converge.
