The Ballad of Jack and Rose (2005)

While Daniel Day Lewis is a great actor (as are many of the characters in Ballad), he can't redeem a film that is just a bit too preachy and over the top. He plays a rich hippy on an abandoned commune who tries to revitalize it before he dies so his daughter will have a place to continue living. He has to fight an encroaching developer and keep everything together though. It's a moral tale about living close to the land and the important things in life.
