Matt Damon stars as Steve Butler in Gus Van Sant’s contemporary drama “Promised Land,” a Focus Features release set to open Friday nationwide. In this film about fracking, Damon’s character repeatedly points out that drilling has brought new life to struggling towns, calls U.S. reliance on foreign sources of energy “insane,” and defends fracking as a technology with a proven track record of safety. And he seems to believe it himself, at least initially. (AP Photo/Focus Features, Sam Jones)
