Land (out Apr 29) is the story of a middle-aged, suburban woman (Robin Wright) who, after a tragic event, has shut herself off from the world in a dilapidated cabin in the Wyoming wilderness. Withholding her backstory works against the film (it would have helped us buy into her decisions along the way) but Land finds its feet in the second half thanks to the arrival of a hunter played by Demián Bichir. A simple but effective tale. Grade: B+.
