To the Wonder


Acclaimed filmmaker Terrence Malick (Tree of Life, Days of Heaven) delivers another dazzling masterpiece with his highly-anticipated new feature, To the Wonder, a visually majestic drama starring Ben Affleck, Javier Bardem, Rachel McAdams and Olga Kurylenko. Parisian single mother Marina (Kurylenko) and Midwestern tourist Neil (Affleck) fall madly in love in France and relocate to Oklahoma with Marina’s young daughter to start a new life together. As their relationship wanes and her visa nears expiration, Marina makes the acquaintance of a priest and fellow exile (Javier Bardem) who is struggling with his faith, while Neil renews a relationship with his childhood sweetheart, Jane (Rachel McAdams). Bold, lyrical and spiritually provocative as only a Terrence Malick film could be, To the Wonder is a moving exploration of love in its many forms.
