Promised Land Synopsis
Promised Land is the new contemporary drama directed by Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Milk). Matt Damon plays Steve Butler, an ace corporate salesman who is sent along with his partner, Sue Thomason (Frances McDormand), to close a key rural town in his company's expansion plans. 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), as well as the interest of a local woman (Rosemarie DeWitt). Promised Land explores America at the crossroads where big business and the strength of small-town community converge.

When John Krasinski sits down at a table full of people who all want his attention, he manages to speak to all them-- sometimes simultaneously, which is a real feat. He answers questions that seem inane with answers that sound profound.

Matt Damon On The Advice Steven Spielberg Gave Him And Returning To Writing For Promised Land Matt Damon On The Advice Steven Spielberg Gave Him And Returning To Writing For Promised Land
"Not to be a horrible name dropper, but Steven Spielberg told me…" That sentence could be an immediate deal-breaker with many people, especially if you're talking to a very famous, very successful movie star whose presence in the same room as you seems, frankly, impossible. But coming from Matt Damon, who is exactly as friendly and casual in person as you'd hope, it's somehow perfectly fine...
