Slick salesman Steve Butler (Damon) arrives in a rural town to snap up farmland so his employers, Global Crosspower Solutions, can siphon out the natural gas via hydraulic fracturing or ‘fracking’. Resistance from an old-timer (Holbrook), a spunky environmentalist (Krasinski) and an attractive local teacher (DeWitt) will lead him to question his motives.
Another charming take on a familiar scenario: Northern Exposure with Jason Bourne. Which is a backhanded way of saying this is far from the challenging movie it promised to be.
