1. Land (TBA)
Robin Wright has amazed us as an actress and is now all set to amaze us as a director. She is coming with her feature directorial debut titled ‘Land’, where she stars as well. The drama movie shows how grief can affect different people. We deal with sadness in our own ways, and more often than not flight is a common coping mechanism. We believe we can outrun our demons, not knowing that we carry our own hells with us.
Wright’s character is a cosmopolitan lawyer, Mathis, who cannot cope with her grief and takes the suggestions of survivalists, deciding to go off-grid. Moving to the Shoshone National Forest in Wyoming, Mathis must try to survive in one of the least populated areas in the US. She has to make an attempt to learn hunting, fishing, and various other activities, as she has to survive in her cabin. The weather is harsh, the landscape unforgiving, and the animals in the wild might just kill her. However, this woman who is not accustomed to the outdoorsy life at all gives it a go.
She begins to get used to a new life, but a chance encounter with a First Nations local, Joseph, forces her to confront the demons of the past. The project seems to be one that will rely heavily on the acting. Luckily Wright is a veteran and will be sure to deliver a stellar performance. Since she is directing the project as well, we can be sure that her vision as an actor and director will be reconciled, giving us a drama that is bound to make us take notice.
