To the Wonder (Written/Directed by Terrence Malick)

Screening time is confirmed for 1:55.  I will be at the Landmark at around 1:30 and we can meet in the lobby of the theater.  If you have any trouble locating the group, please feel free to call or text me @[masked]-3472. Afterward, if there is interest, the group can grab a bite to eat (or a drink) and discuss the film. Hope to see you there.

Neil (Ben Affleck) is an American traveling in Europe who meets and falls in love with Marina (Olga Kurylenko), an Ukrainian divorcée who is raising her 10-year-old daughter Tatiana in Paris. The lovers travel to Mont St. Michel, the island abbey off the coast of Normandy, basking in the wonder of their newfound romance. Neil makes a commitment to Marina, inviting her to relocate to his native Oklahoma with Tatiana. He takes a job as an environmental inspector and Marina settles into her new life in America with passion and vigor. After a holding pattern, their relationship cools. Marina finds solace in the company of another exile, the Catholic priest Father Quintana (Javier Bardem), who is undergoing a crisis of faith. Work pressures and increasing doubt pull Neil further apart from Marina, who returns to France with Tatiana when her visa expires. Neil reconnects with Jane (Rachel McAdams), an old flame. They fall in love until Neil learns that Marina has fallen on hard times. ...

    it was a pleasure meeting you, Peter, Kevin, Dan, Karen, and Maria. Here's A. O. Scott's review of the film. I thought it was good and funny. He says it's R-rated for softcore indoor twirling. ha.

    I crammed too much in to one Saturday and I don't want to feel rushed when I see this movie. Hope it's a great experience as most Malick films are :)

    Good actors. I will attend whenever I can. Maybe, hopefully on this one - work and time. A lot of my work is on the weekends - students.

    So looking forward to viewing this film. Malick's films are such visual seductions. This is my first meetup, I am looking forward to meeting everyone.
