TO THE WONDER
2012, Magnolia, 118 min, Dir: Terrence Malick

Writer-director Terrence Malick drew from his own life to take an abstract look at romantic connections and disconnections. While traveling in Paris, Neil (Ben Affleck) falls for Marina (Olga Kurylenko), bringing the Ukrainian divorcée and her 10-year old daughter with him to his native Oklahoma. But the relationship falters in this deeply spiritual drama, beautifully shot by Emmanuel Lubezki. With Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem.

With a mind-boggling cast including Sean Penn, Adrien Brody, Jim Caviezel, George Clooney, Woody Harrelson, Elias Koteas, Nick Nolte and John C. Reilly.
