In his new film “Promised Land” Matt Damon tackles the social impact of the hydraulic fracturing drilling technique, or “fracking,” which has sparked environmental and political battles over its impact on drinking water, energy use, seismic activity and other impacts.

Damon plays a corporate salesman who goes to a rural U.S. town to buy or lease land on behalf of a gas company looking to drill for oil. He soon faces opposition from a slick environmentalist, played by John Krasinski.
