LAND OF PLENTY (Watch this on SundanceNOW for 99¢ with the code: LAND)
Michelle Williams brings her signature emotional depth to this drama by Wim Wenders, a European filmmaker whose fascination with American culture harkens back to his 1984 breakthrough PARIS, TEXAS. Set on the streets of downtown LA, LAND OF PLENTY is a darkly humorous look at America from two very different perspectives: through the eyes of Paul (John Diehl), a troubled, patriotic Vietnam veteran, and an idealistic young woman (Williams).
“The story of a paranoid Vietnam vet (John Diehl) and his liberal missionary niece (Michelle Williams) who was raised abroad opens thoughtful dialogue contrasting U.S. and international attitudes to 9/11.” – Leslie Felperin, Variety
Independent Spirit Award Nominee for Best Female Lead (Michelle Williams)
