Editorial Reviews

18 year old Audrey (Agnes Bruckner) lives with her father (John Corbett) in a remote community in the breathtakingly beautiful New Mexico desert. Though Audrey longs to go to college, she spends her days taking care of her father, who hasn't left home since Audrey's mother died, and her best friend Calista (Kelli Garner), who dreams of becoming Miss America but is struggling with a life-challenging illness. The summer after Audrey graduates from high school, her world is changed forever when an attractive young man named Mookie (Justin Long) moves in next door with his mother Mary (Gina Gershon) and her fiancée, Herb (Chris Mulkey). Knowing how much Calista longs for romance, Audrey encourages Mookie to ask Calista on a date. He obliges, and he and Calista soon become a couple. Audrey, however, finds herself developing feelings for Mookie, and as these feelings grow it becomes harder and harder to remain the dependable, selfless person that her father and best friend have always count

4.0 out of 5 stars Caring for Others, Taking Care of the Self December 22, 2006
Format:DVD
DREAMLAND is one of those little Indie films that sneaks up on you, draws you in and leaves you feeling fulfilled. Written by Tom Willett and directed with great sensitivity to both style and message by Jason Matzner, the film boasts a truly remarkable cast in every role and the ensemble acting is some of the finest in this year's lineup.

"Dreamland" is the name of a very small trailer park in New Mexico, out in the sticks, yes, but surrounded by the magnificence of majestic clouds in crystalline blue skies and a land free of industrial detritus - except for the powerlines that play such an important role in the story. In a sad trailer house live Audrey (Agnes Bruckner), a poet who has given up chances for college to remain with her father Henry (John Corbett), a man decimated by the death of his wife to the point that he is unable to leave the trailer even to buy the beer and cigarettes that sustain his life. Audrey also is caring for her closest friend Calista (Kelli Garner), a beautiful girl who dreams of becoming Miss America but knows her life is to be shortened by the fact that she suffers from Multiple Sclerosis. Audrey writes her poetry but her life is consumed by being the caretaker for Henry and Calista.

Into the trailer park moves a new 'family' - hunky young Mookie (Justin Long) and his mother ex-singer/performer Mary (Gina Gershon) and her live-in boyfriend Herb (Chris Mulkey). Audrey and Calista watch them unpack and while both girls find Mookie attractive, Audrey talks Calista into dating him. Audrey's only male contact is her 'sex-buddy', tacky and gawky Abraham (Brian Klugman) who works at the local convenience store with Audrey.

Life has potential and hope springs eternal even out in the middle of nowhere (New Mexico to be precise) at a rundown trailer park appropriately named "Dreamland."

We've all driven by such rundown, out of the way places and wondered what would possess a person to settle down in such a location. Are they people with hopes, ambitions and talents? Are they people like you and me? Maybe yes, maybe no. 'Dreamland' released in '05 deals with just such a quaint, out-of-the-way spot where a small group of individuals dwell away from the maddening crowd in an attempt to sort out the mysteries of life and the possible opportunities that await outside their cloistered community.

I enjoyed this movie. `Dreamland' contains an attractive cast of characters, a strong storyline with some quirky situations, beautiful desert scenery and an enjoyable Indie soundtrack. This is a film that will stand up well to repeat viewings, which is the bottom line for any good movie.

P.S.: If you know of any trailer parks that have female residents as good-looking as the one's in this film please give me a call.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dreams in the Desert...and a Lot of Co-Dependency February 8, 2007
Format:DVD
There are two things that work well in first-time director Jason Matzner's leisurely paced 2006 indie drama. The first are the arresting visuals of the sun-parched New Mexico desert landscape courtesy of the rich, mirage-like cinematography of Jonathan Sela. The second is the touching performance of Agnes Bruckner as eighteen-year old Audrey, the emotional focus of this rather idiosyncratic coming-of-age story. Looking and acting a bit like Toni Collette's prettier baby sister, Bruckner lends refreshing resonance to a role that could have been left as another put-upon teen coming to terms with her life. Written by Tom Willett, the story takes place in the aptly named Dreamland, an isolated trailer park where a group of people are living just outside of the mainstream.

What we discover in Dreamland is a community of needy misfits with Audrey the common thread who nobly helps them carry on with their lives. She lives with her beer-swilling, agoraphobic father, who stays in the trailer park like a recluse unable to get past his wife's death two years prior. She also takes care of her best friend, the self-dubbed Calista, a beauty queen wannabe gradually deteriorating from multiple sclerosis. All the while, Audrey works at the local mini-mart with her beatnik co-worker Abraham with whom she experiments carnally on occasion. When a new family moves into the park, Audrey and Calista are both attracted to Mookie, the basketball-obsessed son of a minor-league rock singer just about to marry her pedal steel guitar-playing boyfriend. The inevitable complications occur and lead to a tragic event that forces all the co-dependency issues to come to the surface.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost a Masterpiece March 19, 2007
Format:DVD
"Dreamland" is one of those movies that come out every year and stay completely below the radar and maintain only the smallest of audiences. It was one of those movies I saw the trailer for and just thought "I have to see that movie." It, in the end, falls short in many areas and isn't a masterpiece; But it's got some powerhouse performances and a great look and mood to it. Agnes Brucker, a talented actress who appeared in "The Woods," plays Audrey, an aspiring poet, who lives in a trailer park deep in New Mexico called Dreamland. Audrey lives with her dad Henry (John Corbett); a man who lives in an alcohol induced haze and likes to reminisce about his long-dead wife. Audrey's best friend is Calista (Kelli Garner, 'Thumbsucker'), a girl recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis who one day dreams of winning Miss America. Their lives are long and empty. Audrey works at a convenience store and has sex with her co-worker, then she goes home and writes poetry, or hangs out with Calista. Then a new family moves in; Mom, Mary (Gina Gershon), boyfriend Herb (Chris Mulkey), and son Mookie (Justin Long), who the girls instantly take a liking too. When Calista and Mookie start dating, Audrey (whose life is all about supporting the people around her) finds jealousy consuming her. Eventually, Mookie and Audrey find themselves falling for each other and so on...The movie comes very close to becoming a masterpiece. It's got all the elements; great acting, great cinematography, great art direction, and great dialogue. It's the script (by Tom Willett) that just stops it from entering the realm of masterpiece. The film tends to drag in some spots, but is overall entertaining. I have to give Willett credit for writing a movie about people who live in a trailer park and not turning them into stereotypes.
