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

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.

I can't remember where or when I saw the preview for this movie but I knew I had to see it once I did see the preview. I'm not going to go into the actual plot. You can read the other reviews to get the plot. I'm leaving a review for others like me that are suckers for any story with an unrequited love theme. This movie definitely had it between Audrey & Mookie. Ah! So good. Not many people have even heard of this movie but everyone should rent it at least once. I'm very picky with movies I actually buy and this is a definite addition to my dvd collection.

Format: DVD
This is an odd sort of film - simplistic yet profound, sad yet somehow uplifting. There's a slight edge of surreality to the whole story, but the characters couldn't be more human. Basically, Dreamland left me feeling a bit odd and slightly out of sorts, but in a good way. It's as if I expected some kind of enlightenment to break through the clouds in the final moments, and the fact that this didn't happen strikes me as somehow profound.

You might recognize the lead actress from the film The Woods, but I've been a fan of Agnes Bruckner ever since I saw her in Rick (another indie film that deserves much more attention than it has received). It's true that I have a thing for redheads, but this young lady can act, and she has the kind of magical persona that only the greatest actresses are born with. Watching her in Dreamland, I saw some real similarities with Angelina Jolie in her facial expressions and the sheer power of her presence. It's an all-too-rare treat to see a great actress at work, and I can only hope that Agnes Bruckner gets the kinds of roles she deserves in the years ahead - she's really something special. Not to be outdone, however, is Kelli Garner, who turns in an impassioned, subtly exquisite performance as Calista, an ethereal beauty who dreams of becoming Miss America even as she lives with the knowledge and fear of being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

Dreamland, it turns out, is a trailer park out in the middle of the desert. The small number of inhabitants make up a surprisingly strong community, but the deepest bond is between Audrey (Bruckner) and Calista (Garner). It's a really confusing time for Audrey, who has just graduated from high school.
