Movie Info

Most Americans have never stepped foot on a farm or ranch or even spoken with the people who grow and raise the food we eat. FARMLAND takes an intimate look at the lives of several farmers and ranchers, all in their 20's, and all responsible for running their own agriculture businesses. Academy Award-winning director James Moll traveled across the country to capture a first-hand glimpse into this high-risk/high-reward job, along the way discovering the passion these farmers have for a way of life that has been passed down from generation to generation, yet continues to evolve.

Critic Reviews for Farmland

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (7)

  • A film that plays more like a feature-length advertisement than like a documentary. You keep expecting the camera to zoom in on a packet of bacon or a box of cereal.

  • Farmland lets the farmers tell their stories, but doesn't see fit to shape them into anything resembling a coherent statement or narrative.

  • Perhaps if Moll offered less of the static sit-down interviews and more fly-on-the-grain vérité, viewers might feel some new, intimate connection between the farmers and the nourishment that unites us.

  • Though the perspective of farmers is well worth examining, this good-looking 77 minutes of propaganda is heavy on sugar-coating and light on nutritional value.

  • Some of the human-interest stories are compelling, but too much of this film is as dry as a high school classroom presentation.

  • "Farmland" often comes off like lobbyist propaganda, profusely extolling the virtues of the independent American farmer.
