Official Trailer and Poster for ‘The Dry Land’

Those of you who have been following the festival circuit this year may have heard of a little movie that’s getting a lot of buzz called The Dry Land. The film premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize. Recently it played at the Edinburgh Film Festival and won the Best International Feature Award. After the film’s premiere at Sundance The Hollywood Reporter called it “a troubling meditation on one man’s fall from grace.”

The Dry Land is the feature directorial debut for Ryan Piers Williams who formerly worked as a production assistant on such films as Ocean’s Thirteen and The Good German. The cast includes television veterans America Ferrera, Wilmer Valderrama, and Jason Ritter and Academy Award nominee Melissa Leo. According to the official synopsis “The Dry Land follows a U.S. soldier returning home from war as he struggles to reconcile his experiences abroad with the life and family he left in Texas.”

There have been countless Iraq war dramas in the last several years and many have dealt with the difficult issue of post-traumatic stress. However, if the film is well-made and the story is compelling I will always welcome newcomers to the genre. This trailer looks compelling with a strong looking central performance from almost newcomer Ryan O’Nan. The supporting performances also appear to be strong from America Ferrera and Melissa Leo.

Take a look at the trailer below and let me know what you think:

The Dry Land will be in theatres in New York, Los Angeles, and Dallas on July 30th and it will expand to additional cities on August 13th.
