Land is based on Edee (Robin Wright)’s search for meaning in the American wilderness.
After a family tragedy she finds it difficult to be around people. She purchases a wooden cottage in need of repair behind state forest. She attempts to survive on her own without a mobile phone and modern technology.
Edee is ill prepared for the harsh conditions and almost starves after a series of incidents. But a local hunter brings her back to life and promises to teach her some survival skills.
The Rockies is a beautiful backdrop to this film, which at times pauses on the scenery. So definitely catch this one in cinemas on the big screen, if interested.
Land is lovely film about our need to find meaning in our lives, going back to a simpler way of life and learning to trust people again.
From acclaimed actress Robin Wright comes her directorial debut LAND, the poignant story of one woman’s search for meaning in the vast and harsh American wilderness. Edee (Wright), in the aftermath of an unfathomable event, finds herself unable to stay connected to the world she once knew and in the face of that uncertainty, retreats to the magnificent, but unforgiving, wilds of the Rockies. After a local hunter (Demián Bichir) brings her back from the brink of death, she must find a way to live again.
Wright directs and stars in the film written by Jesse Chatham and Erin Digman. Co-starring with Wright is Oscar and ALMA nominee Demián Bichir. Joining them in the cast is Kim Dickens. Land is produced by Allyn Stewart, Lora Kennedy, Leah Holzer, and Peter Saraf.
