Rural New England just before Reagan's second term. Meg (Jordan Baker) and Ben (Jon Krupp) are a creditor away from losing their family farm. To the rescue flies a high-powered businessman (Peter Bradbury) -- in a private chopper no less -- offering a tidy sum for a taste of farm life and the pure, raw milk that goes with it. Even before locavores roamed the earth, "back to the land" was hardly as simple as its promise; livestock and humans aren't known for behaving as expected. And so it is in Milk, an elegant parable of change set on the cusp of a shifting American landscape.
