Demián Bichir and Robin Wright are co-stars in the new film LandBichir’s plays Miguel, who crosses path with Wright’s character, Edee and share a friendship of compassion. 

 

The Synopsis

A story about healing and the transcendent power of human kindness, LAND follows the journey of a woman searching for a new way to live in the wake of a life-altering loss. Edee Holzer (Robin Wright, “Forrest Gump”) removes herself from society to embark on a solitary existence in the remote mountain wilderness of Wyoming. Living off the grid without no prior wilderness experience, Edee is buffeted by the elements and unprepared for nature’s formidable realities. She struggles mightily against odds that grow steeper by the day, but a timely encounter with a local man, Miguel Borras (Demián Bichir, “The Hateful Eight”), opens the door to deeper understanding of nature as he  teaches her the skills she needs to survive. An unexpected friendship develops between two  wounded souls, and a bond that confers healing and grace.
