Without question, filmmaker Terrence Malick has a signature style, but unfortunately, it's his style that has critics divided over his movies. His latest lyrical drama "To the Wonder" is no exception. It premiered back in September at Venice Film Festival, and received a divisive reaction from audiences. Some believed the movie lack structure, while others praised Malick for his dream-like craftsmanship. But whatever the case, the international trailer for the film delivers a breathtaking impression. Check it out, above.
In the movie (hitting theaters on April 12th), Olga Kurylenko stars as a single mother living in Paris, who gets romantically involved with an American man (Ben Affleck) who's passing through Europe. They fall in love, get married, and move together in his hometown of Oklahoma. As soon as the dust settles, they realize their marriage has major problems, motivating Affleck's character to rekindle a relationship with an old flame (Rachel McAdams). Javier Bardem co-stars as a local priest in a parallel storyline; he also delivers the film's narration.
Neil (Ben Affleck) is a man who is torn between two loves: Marina (Olga Kurylenko), the European woman who comes to United States to be with him, and Jane (Rachel McAdams), the old flame he reconnects with from his hometown. Neil's doubts about his life and loves are reflected in the crisis of faith experienced by Father Quintana (Javier Bardem), who only sees pain and the loss of hope in the world.
