Focus Features’ PROMISED LAND, which opens on Friday, December 28
In this contemporary drama, corporate salesman Steve Butler (Matt Damon) arrives in a rural
town with his sales partner, Sue Thomason (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 (Hal Holbrook) with support from a grassroots campaign led by
another man (John Krasinski) who counters Steve both personally and professionally.
