Indie Trailer Sunday: Ryan Piers Williams Film The Dry Land
As today is the 4th of July, we've got a fairly patriotic trailer to feature. The Dry Land is an indie drama written and directed by America Ferrera's boyfriend Ryan Piers Williams. It stars America Ferrera and Wilmer Valderrama and also features appearances by Ethan Suplee, Melissa Leo and Jason Ritter. The lead actor in the film is an up-and-coming actor named Ryan O'Nan and he looks like he gives an incredible performance. I personally think we've seen way too many of these "life isn't the same when you return home from war" films, but this doesn't look too bad, so I'll give it a chance. Watch and let us know your thoughts?

A soldier returning home from war struggles to reconcile his experience abroad with the life he left behind.
The Dry Land is both written and directed by Texas-born first-time filmmaker Ryan Piers Williams, of only a short film previously called Muertas. However, Williams previously worked as a post-production assistant on Steven Soderbergh films like Ocean's Twelve & Thirteen and The Good German and just so happens to be America Ferrera's boyfriend. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and is being distributed by Maya Releasing. The Dry Land arrives in limited theaters starting July 30th this summer. Interested?
