The Promised Land - Gus Van Sant, 2012

Conflicts opposing major corporations to small-time farmers is nothing new on screen.
What sets this one apart is Van Sant's talented film-making and the reversal of roles. Indeed, Damon and Mc Dormand's potential villains are both likable and down-to-earth.

The whole issue is more complicated than your average opposition of good guys versus bad guys.

The ending was a bit of a let-down, however.
