Promised Land was a pretty good movie I though it was well directed and had good actors. of the movies I have seen in theater recently it was one of the better movies. Although it had a few corny characters it was over all good.
Gus Van Stant has done some pretty good films my favorite is still Good Will Hunting which Matt Damon also played in I wouldn’t say this was as good as that but it was not to bad. I would say Gus Van Stant has made some great movies and a few not so much.
