Release date: January 4, 2013
Steve Butler (Matt Damon) is one of two corporate sales people who arrive in a rural town in search of drilling rights to their properties—a seemingly ideal solution for a town that has been hit hard by the recent economic decline.
Along with his partner, Sue Thomason (Frances McDormand), Steve is faced with a much greater challenge than he initially bargained for, brought on by objections from a local schoolteacher (Hal Holbrook) who brings to light the damage that the proposed actions will have on the town's water supply. Steve's job is even further complicated when Dustin (John Krasinksi), a slick environmentalist, joins the fight, bringing both the personal and professional stakes to a boiling point.
Based on a story by Dave Eggers.
