The Driftless Area :- Watch The Driftless Area on Youtube on Fire, Ponderously exploring pedestrian notions of the universe and connectedness, while mixing in familiar coming-of-age conflicts of love, death, and loss, and sprinkled with bumbling neo-noir crime and even magical realism, “The Driftless Area” is an overloaded, but generally underwhelming and meandering story about small town existence, fate, and the meaning of life. In one corner, there’s Pierre. Next to him is his best friend Carrie (Alia Shawkat), whose main purpose for existing in this story is to deliver expository backstory (in tired voice over) about Pierre’s unfortunate life. Then there’s the mysterious Stella (Zooey Deschanel), who may or may not have survived a house fire, and is connected with the town’s resident weirdo hermit, the mystical Tim Geer (Frank Langella), who strangely understands everything that happened to her and how to spiritually rectify “her story.” Finally, there’s Shane, who is paid by his boss (Ciaran Hinds) to burn down the house that Stella was randomly staying in. Shane and Pierre meet through happenstance and their quarrel leads to the young man stealing the older thief’s bag of cash, which puts the turgid “tracking down the money” plot into action. Based on the novel by Tom Drury, the story is ostensibly about an unremarkable, luckless 24-year-old man named Pierre (played by an unassertive Anton Yelchin) who returns to life as a bartender in his Midwest hometown after his parents die and gets fatefully involved with a dangerous, but semi-idiotic career criminal named Shane (John Hawkes). It’s hackneyed plot which feels more contrived and arbitrary than convincing about chance and the mysteries of coincidence strains to connect disparate characters.
