Promised Land showing: Western Australia

Oscar-nominated director Gus Van Sant re-teams with his Good Will Hunting screenwriter Matt Damon for this topical drama based on a story by Dave Eggers. Damon stars as Steve Butler, a corporate salesman for a large energy company. Arriving in a small town to convince the locals of the benefits of coal seam gas exploration, Butler is forced to reflect on his own family's history of living off the land when he faces unexpected resistance from an elderly farmer (Hal Holbrook), an activist (co-screenwriter John Krasinski) and elected officials. Co-starring Frances McDormand and Rosemarie DeWitt, Van Sant's timely film arrives as the issue of unconventional gas exploration continues to make headlines in Australia .

Tickets are $17, available on from No Fracking WAy or on the door.
