CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com appears on “The Morning Mess” with Scott Thompson on WBGR-FM (Monroe, Wisconsin) on February 11th, 2021, reviewing the new film “Land,” in theaters beginning February 12th, 2021.

“Land” is the director debut of Robin Wright, who is also featured as Edee, a Chicago woman who is shown without direction in her life. The scene shifts to Wyoming, where Edee has purchased a remote cabin in the wilderness, and she is determined to cut herself off from her past and the world. After a tumultuous couple of months, she is found in the cabin near death by Miguel (Demián Bichir), who nurses her back to health and teaches her some survival techniques. Although Edee desires to keep her promise to stay away from the world, Miguel occasionally checks in, until one day he’s gone for an extended period.

Male version of a “bimbo”) energy.
