    "Dreamland" is down-to-earth and everything an independent film should be. The cast is by far the gold lining of the film, with John Corbett delivering his most touching role yet. Kelli Garner shows off her stunning good looks while playing a struggling MS patient, adding a much needed depth to her character. Never having experienced Agnes Bruckner before, she definitely earned herself an IMDB.com look up. Who would have thought a film about a trailer park in the desert could have so much heart?

    Others may not enjoy this movie as much as I did because I felt a real connection to the character with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) because I also have MS. The dreams to escape the reality of the situation she lives in is TOO familiar!! Dreamland could just as easily be where I am (and it is)! Making the best of a bad situation and finding hope and learning to live with situations are all common elements of my life I saw on screen in this film. A personal connection is why I love this movie so much!

    I thought the plot was really boring and at times really cheesy (fast forward to the girl running to the bees, drawing a heart around herself in the sand, and then trying to get the bees to kill her (?) ) But I gave it 2 stars anyway, because it was so beautifully shot.

    Liked this a lot. Very moving and the whole cast do a great job with this (even John Corbett who is normally the kiss of death in a film as far as I am concerned). It's a fairly small film in that not a lot happens, but it is beautiful to look at (who would have thought life in a caravan park could be picturesque!), and Agnes Bruckner and Kelli Garner so convincing that you can't help but care about their lives and what happens to them.
