About the Movie
From Executive Producer Martin Scorsese, on a fifty acre tobacco farm in North Carolina, Tracy (Amy Ryan, Oscar Nominee for "Gone Baby Gone") and Jesse (Terry Kinney) bury the remains of their recently deceased father in the middle of the field, in the land that he loved. One week later they find three oldermen camping in their field. Tracy and Jesse discover the men (Max Gail, Francis Guinan, Stever Coulter) are brothers whose family used to own the farm. They haven't been back in 50 years. ABUNDANT ACREAGE AVAILABLE is about family, morality, ownership, grief and letting go.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Amazingly, this is Ryan's first lead role in a feature film, and although the sparse Abundant Acreage doesn't always rise to her level, her understated but powerful performance brings the story to life - even in the dead of winter.
Fresh: Only on the big screen are we able to fully appreciate the minutely detailed nature of Ryan's performance, revealing Tracy's soul via the slightest narrowing of the eyes or the almost-subliminal tensing of her cheekbones.
Fresh: Cinematographer Andrew Reed captures the harsh beauty of post-harvest winter in sharp relief: crunchy stalks left in the field, the sky a crystalline blue.
Fresh: Each of the five superb actors gets a moment of dramatic glory out of Mr. MacLachlan's screenplay, which is about guilt, roots and the selfishness of implacable conviction. Each makes the most of it.
