I liked this movie becasue it is a gentle movie- no violence, no gore, no sex so okay for kids but there is some minimal launguage if I remember correctly. Acting is great. Story is okay. I thought it was interesting. Not a movie that you will walk out of thinking "this has changed my life." But for entertainment it was interesting, intelligent and easy on the eyes. Not a hard core anti-fracking movie either - just enough to make you think.

This Movie had such a positive impact on Americans and there Farms to show them how they can save there land from dying off and how they can get there crops back to produce better income for there family's and Friends mainly through the idea of using natural gas to some how nurture there farms to keep things alive. Overall it was a rewarding Movie i wasn't to thrilled about the cursing but hands down it was great movie and a must see!

I filmed the response of five people after the screening of Promised Land at the Regal Theater, Ithaca, NY on January 4. The video is posted on the ShaleShock YouTube channel (Video identifier is u_PIiNKDmmA in case the link doesn't work.)
Here are the questions I asked:
• Did the film meet your expectations, or were you surprised where it went?
• Did the characters portrayed in the film ring true to you?
• What is the take away message for you if any?
• Would you recommend others to see this film?

I've had enough irrational political BS in recent months. I don't need a fact-less political movie bashing big business. Just where do folks think jobs are going to come from without big business or bug business handcuffed into inaction. we'll all be growing our own organic crops in our back yards if this keeps up.
How about movies getting back to entertainment, politicians getting back to representing their electorate, and big business getting back to big business. What a novel idea.
