Promised Land Header

Due to the amount of work and the continual search to find the right project, Matt Damon’s directorial debut continues to be put on hold. But audiences still want to see the acclaimed actor on the screen, and come early next year we will see him reunite with Gus Van Sant for another potentially award-winning piece.

The two come back together for a film called Promise Land. In it, the controversial use of fracking, a method for extracting oil and natural gas, takes center stage. Damon plays as a salesman who comes to a small town asking the residents if he could drill on their land. This dangerous practice has proven to have its negative effects on the land and the people living on it, and one man named Dustin (John Krasinski) convinces the townspeople to rally together to put a stop to it.

Check out the first trailer for Promise Land below.

Disney In Depth: Movie Review: The Odd Life of Timothy Green

A most peculiar drama, indeed. As I watched The Odd Life of Timothy Green I kept thinking of how rare it is to find a touching, genuine piece of film that literally grows on you. Nothing especially grand in scale, just a simple fantasy set in reality. Director Peter Hedges has fashioned a sweet tale with sensibility, one that despite inspiring some eye-rolling and struggling to maintain a cohesive structure, manages to breathe kindness and spirit.

Disney has surely expanded its range in films in recent years, in terms of tone, and I suppose soon enough one would arrive in the form of a married couple who cannot have a child. Jim and Cindy Green, played with warmth by the duo of Joel Edgerton (Warrior) and Alias star Jennifer Garner, have almost given up hope on having a child of their very own. In a flash-forward scene toward the opening, the pair shares with an adoption agency of why they are suitable parents. They tell their miraculous story, of their short and certainly odd experience with a 10-year-old boy who enters their lives.

Your Sister's Sister PosterYour Sister’s Sister
Directed by Lynn Shelton
Written by Lynn Shelton
Starring Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt, Mark Duplass, Mike Birbiglia
IFC Films
Rated R | 90 Minutes
Release Date: June 29, 2012

In her new film, Your Sister’s Sister, Sundance award-winning filmmaker Lynn Shelton explores the complexities of interpersonal relationships with off-the-cuff humor and intimate authenticity.

Mark Duplass (Safety Not Guaranteed, The League) stars as Jack who, a year after his brother’s death, is still emotionally struggling and lost in life. He takes up an offer from his friend (and dead brother’s ex-girlfriend) Iris (Emily Blunt) to stay at her father’s isolated cabin to seek comfort and catharsis in solitude.

Upon arriving at the cabin, Jack meets Iris’ sister Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt), who is reeling from the abrupt end of a seven-year relationship. The two bond over a long night of drinking and swapping stories, a sequence entirely improvised by Duplass and DeWitt. As it usually does, the drinking leads to spontaneous, casual sex – which triggers a complicated, really awkward love triangle when Iris arrives for a surprise visit.
