    Promised Land is directed by Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Focus’ Milk). The film’s original screenplay is by John Krasinski & Matt Damon and its story by Dave Eggers. In this contemporary drama, corporate salesman Steve Butler (Matt Damon) arrives in a rural town with his sales partner, Sue Thomason (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand). With the town having been hit hard by the economic decline of recent years, the two outsiders see the local citizens as likely to accept their company’s offer, for drilling rights to their properties, as much-needed relief. What seems like an easy job for the duo becomes complicated by the objection of a respected schoolteacher (Academy Award nominee Hal Holbrook) with support from a grassroots campaign led by another man (John Krasinski) who counters Steve both personally and professionally. Promised Land also stars Rosemarie DeWitt, Scoot McNairy, and Titus Welliver; and is produced by Matt Damon, John Krasinski, and Chris Moore. MPAA-rated “R” (for language), the film has a running time of approximately 110 minutes.
