Promised Land, the Movie Reviewed

Promised Land is a movie about Fracking. It is well made but I found it more interesting for providing some background into why the Fracking companies have been so successful, rather than its value as a drama.

Matt Damon, Francis McDormand and John Krasinski do well with their leads. The story they tell about the methods of the Fracking companies was enlightening to say the least, and really helped me understand why the rural landowners have bought this dangerous technology that more often than not ruins their land and water.
