The PRomised Land

I am not sure about fracking process. Whether it is safe way of extracting the gas from the ground below. The movie does convey that it may not be. There weren't details and enough facts. But the movie does give a cute lesson in PR.

Matt Damon works for Global, a gas company. He is successful sales person who is able to source the lands for extraction for the company. He is sent to a farm town in Pennsylvania. There he meets a resistance in the form of an old teacher. To make things work an environmentalist also arrives and starts to campaign against Global's efforts.

In the climax, Matt realises that the entire show is being managed by Global. For more details do watch the movie. Not spectacular but still watchable.
