Matt Damon and Gus Van Sant team up again for this soft-soap eco-drama that boasts neither the bravery of Gerry nor the commercial instincts of Good Will Hunting, their previous major outings.
Writing with co-star John Krasinski, Damon is a gas firm rep sent to a Pennsylvania backwater to convince the locals to lease their land for drilling – a task made harder by Krasinski’s smug, Springsteen-singing eco-warrior.
Frances McDormand demands attention as Damon’s no-nonsense colleague, as does town spokesperson Hal Holbrook.
Modelled on Local Hero, only with less success, Damon’s redemptive journey is fracking disappointing.
