AN EASY, RELAXING FILM ABOUT THE PLUS AND MINUS OF "FRACKING" FOR NATURAL GAS!
There are times when the comfort of predictability, a cocoon of complacency is the perfect anecdote in a season of massive doses of mayhem, morbidity, dismemberment and destruction...
?Promised Land? is the fare, pabulum, alleviating the the gloom of ?Les Miz,? ?Django Unchained?; a dose of ?fracking? (a combination of water, sand and chemicals, hydraulically drilled into the ground to release natural gas) leads to a mildly entertaining film about the explosion of modern technology and its harmful/healing effects on a small farming community, slowly suffocating from financial duress...
It is sweetly satisfying forecasting the conclusion; ?Promised Land? gifts the viewer wholesome folks, devoid of pretense; illusions rooted in reality; they want to educate their children, fix their tractors; enjoy the local pub on Friday evenings. For many, this is as good as it gets...
TWO AND 1/2 STARS!!
