We are living in a strange time, one where many feel disconnected from the world surrounding them. It’s easy to feel lost and alone. To me, it’s always interesting to see just how deeply the current climate inspires cinema. It would’ve been impossible to know how relevant the new film Land would feel after the lingering effects of a pandemic. Spoiler alert, it’s a perfect film for the world we are living in. The feature film directorial debut of the wonderfully talented Robin Wright is a profound one. The actress also stars as Edee, a woman who moves to a small cabin in Wyoming to disappear off the grid. Her performance is exceptional, as is her co-star, the fantastic Demián Bichir. The actor portrays a kind man who befriends the heartbroken stranger.
We recently had the incredible opportunity to sit down with both Ms. Wright and Mr. Bichir to talk about this moving feature film. For Robin, the actress/director opened up about discovering this project and why she wanted to take it on. It’s clear that she has much love for this story, and her work has paid off nicely. For Demián, the actor spoke about working with Robin and how the two discovered a strong bond working together on this project. There is so much heart in Land, and while it’s a very short run-time, the film works on many levels; it’s a moving and poignant story. I highly recommend this beautiful feature. Robin Wright brings the stunning locale to life with the help of cinematographer Bobby Bukowski, and both Wright and Bichir give great depth and soul to the impressively written characters. Land is well worth the watch.
