In the wake of her parents death, awkward telemarketer Martha Plant lives a lonely existence sucking at selling air conditioners, burying stolen treasure in the desert, and eating split pea soup. When she fortuitously collides into Sadie Mayflower, a bubbly vagrant with an orange suitcase and penchant for chit chat, Martha takes her in and offers her a position as her treasure burying assistant. But Martha quickly discovers her people-savvy friend has multiple personalities, some nicer than others.
Alexandra Kotcheff and Hannah Leder's film is an offbeat indie that dazzles in all the right ways. A must-watch labour of love.Natasha Alvar, Cultured Vultures
The Planters is a lovingly crafted film full of genuine wonder and surprise, like finding buried treasure.Josh Kupecki, Austin Chronicle
