We enjoyed this film very much. Matt Damon does his usual good job of acting in a convincing fashion, and the other actors are very good also. The story is fairly compelling and does have a "message", but it doesn't beat you over the head. The scenery is lovely, and if you grew up on a farm it can be nostalgic. If you're a city mouse, get to know the rest of the country. Worth your money, but probably just as good on a DVD.

Went to see on Sat 1/5. The theater was sold out! This is because this was filmed in our back yard. The flick was interesting and the plot was a real 'figure it out' type flow. The ending was a pretty cool surprise. It was intersting seeing all the local places that my wife and I go to. I.e. we ate in the coffee shop that was used in the film this morning. Overall a film that is definately worth seeing (once).

Saw a sneak preview and found it to be an earnest but bland plea for us to take thoughtful care of the land. It's full of common sense ideas like read contracts before signing, don't take what strangers say on faith (do your research), no process devised by man can ever be perfect, and all choices entail risks - even the choice to do nothing. I'd recommend the movie for farmers with valuable minerals underneath their property as well as for those in the energy business who really want to be the "good guys". However, for the general movie-going public, this is probably no more than a rainy day rental. Ironically, that's mostly because the film makers tried to be even-handed. Both sides make valid points, and there is no perfect solution handed down to the audience to applaud, so the film is basically a 106-minute conversation starter.
