Land, the directorial debut of actress Robin Wright, tells the story of a woman who attempts to survive alone in the wilderness. Land was not only directed by Wright but it stars her as well. It’s been accepted for the upcoming Sundance Film Festival and it’s February 12th release date would seem to indicate that Focus Features is hoping that the film will pick up some Oscar attention. (Due to the extended eligibility window, films released through the end of February 2021 will be considered eligible for the 2020 Oscars.) Robin Wright is one of those actresses who always seem to get mentioned as being an Oscar contender, though she’s never actually been nominated. We’ll see if Land changes that.
(Personally, I have a feeling that it might be overshadowed by Nomadland. But since when have I ever been right about these things?)
Anyway, here’s the trailer!
