This movie is one of the best dramatic performaces from Matt Damon, Frances Mcdormand, and John K, who is best known for being a comdian. I saw an episode of CSI based on the plot of the movie and it's really sad that Oil Companies do this. Everyone that was casted was believable in their roles, especially Hal Holbrook. This movie is for anyone who wants to see a great dramatic movie but don't take my word for it, see it for yourselves.

Yes, believe it or not. No monsters emerging from the earth, no creatures with magic powers. No. Just an honest and refreshing tale about a man who loses his job but saves his soul. Co-written by Matt Damon, who leads a fine cast of major (McDormand, Krasinski, Holbrook) and minor characters, it doesn't try to preach or be holier-than-thou. A tale of personal transformation which poses some big questions about our society, but doesn't pretend to have the answers.
Those answers are left for the townspeople (and us) to wrestle with. Thanks, Matt Damon.

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.

Matt Damon does a great job at bringing a current political issue to the big screen. It is good that he can afford to get the word out. We need other people such as Damon and Ben Affleck to be our next John Lennon.
