It’s common in Hollywood to see actors transform into filmmakers, from Clint Eastwood to Olivia Wilde, in a long line that now widens with Robin Wright’s directorial debut. The ‘House of cards’ actress takes the reins behind the cameras in ‘ Land ‘, her first film as a director, and which she also stars in.
The film tells the moving story of a woman searching for the meaning of life in the vast American desert. Wright plays Edee, who after a tragic event finds herself unable to stay connected to the same old world, the real world. In her search, Edee settles in the mighty Rocky Mountains, where she hopes to find answers. An interior trip rather than exterior, although there will also be èñigros that you will avoid thanks to a local hunter ( Demián Bichir ).
Wright directs from a script written by Jesse Chatham and Erin Dignam. Despite being a small and intimate film, which revolves completely around its protagonist, we also find in the cast Kim Dickens (seen in ‘Lost’) and the aforementioned Bichir, nominated for an Oscar for ‘A better life’ in 2012.
‘Land’ will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival and hit US screens in February. While we wait for its release date in Spain, we can see Wright reprising his role as Antelope in ‘ Wonder Woman 1984 ‘, released last week.
