Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An epic adventure set amid the encounter of European and Native American cultures during the founding of the Jamestown settlement in 1607.

Inspired by the legend of John Smith and Pocahontas, acclaimed filmmaker Terrence Malick transforms this classic story into a sweeping exploration of love, loss and discovery, both a celebration and an elegy of the America that was...and the America that was yet to come.

Against the dramatic and historically rich backdrop of a pristine Eden inhabited by a great native civilization, Malick has set a dramatized tale of two strong-willed characters, a passionate and noble young native woman and an ambitious soldier of fortune who find themselves torn between the undeniable requirements of civic duty and the inescapable demands of the heart.

Review:

"[Terrence Malick] is a visionary, and this story requires one." Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"Self-indulgent, gorgeous, maddening, grueling, ultimately transcendent, it's a Terrence Malick movie all the way, and possibly the director's most sustained work since 1972's Badlands." The Boston Globe

Review:

"In Terrence Malick's elegiac film, Pocahontas is a woman whose story has the reach of myth and the tragic dimension of life." Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

Review:

"Now we can add this magnificent (and magnificently flawed) specimen to a prized collection of Malick movies....Many have tried, but none can match Malick's touch for shuffling a deck of elegiac images... (Grade: A-)" Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"The New World is a work of breathtaking imagination, less a movie than a mode of transport, and in every sense a masterpiece." The Los Angeles Times

Review:

"That sound you're about to hear is the cracking of spines as Terrence Malick enthusiasts like me bend over backward trying to cut The New World a break." Mike Clark, USA Today

A truly beautiful film. However, the voices are often difficult to hear and understand.
