This singular vision of early seventeenth-century America from TERRENCE MALICK is a work of astounding elemental beauty, a poetic meditation on nature, violence, love, and civilization. It reimagines the apocryphal story of the meeting of British explorer John Smith (COLIN FARRELL) and Powhatan native Pocahontas (Q’ORIANKA KILCHER, in a revelatory performance) as a romantic idyll between spiritual equals, then follows Pocahontas through her marriage to John Rolfe (CHRISTIAN BALE) and her life in England. With art director JACK FISK’s raw re-creation of the Jamestown colony, EMMANUEL LUBEZKI’s marvelous, naturally lit cinematography, and JAMES HORNER’s soaring musical score, The New World is a film of uncommon power and technical splendor, one that shows Malick at the height of his visual and philosophical powers.
