Redland - Movie Synopsis & Plot
As a family struggles to survive in rural Northern California during the Great Depression, their daughter's secret affair begins a journey into the unknown telling a story about the eternal laws of survival and existence, and how one act can begin the dissolution as well as the rebirth of a family.
While I wish I could say that Redland exceeded my expectations or moved me or left some kind of positive impact, I sadly cannot. Redland seems like a film that had high art intensions, striving to show a new perspective on the man vs. nature theme that we've seen so beautifully executed by filmmakers like Terrence Malick or David Gordon Green. And while the visual style used here is not quite like anything I've seen before, Redland fails to deliver the emotional connections needed to make the film engaging.
