Movie was just okay. I was not thrilled but not disappointed either. If you don't like drama movies with no action, then you may want to skip this one.

Lies tell me lies!

Not only is the subject matter right in my wheelhouse, Damon et al bring the lies and distortion right into my backyard. Quite literally. Oh, and did I mention that the film was partly funded by a state-owned media company in the United Arab Emirates? Let the fact checking begin. Please let it begin!

Can the Hollywood liberals at least be honest for once? Typical anti corporation crap coming straight from rich guys that feel its important that YOU know what's best. Ahhh.

Promised Land is great Metaphor for American values.

By Robert Askren
Written February 02, 2015
The cast and filming of this beautiful film create a metaphor for American values of corporate greed and materialism vs American agricultural community life and values. One example of the close farming community that must decide if it wants to sell out for fracking by natural gas corporate development is the scene where a young girl is selling lemonaide. She insists on giving Matt Damon his change back from his purchase instead of just pocketing the profit. American farming communities ae vulnerable to corporate greed. There are no shootings , explodings, or violent fight scenes in this movie, so if that is what someone calls entertainment, you won't like this movie. If you appreciate human relationships and looking at values and motivations,with great character development,you will love this film!
