Promised Land is great Metaphor for American values.
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!
