Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting) and Frances McDormand (Moonrise Kingdom) are at odds over the environment in Promised Land.

Based on a story by David Eggers (Where the Wild Things Are), the drama movie brought Damon back to writing and partnered him with The Office‘s John Krasinski on screenplay duties.

Both also star in the film. Damon plays corporate salesman Steve Butler who’s a former farm boy turned big-time player. He’s tested, however, when he goes back to his hometown with partner Sue Thomason (McDormand) to offer the residents some much needed economic relief. They want to buy drilling rights, but the job is complicated by a respected schoolteacher (Hal Holbrook, The Firm), a slick environmentalist (Krasinski) and Butler’s interest in a local woman (Rosemarie DeWitt, Your Sister’s Sister).
