It looks like the world can finally stop holding it's breath Terrence Malick finally has another film coming out. Malick has only directed 4 films since his 1973 feature film debut Badlands. Most recently he gave us The New World in 2005 and before that was The Thin Red Line in 1998... prior to that it had been 20 years since his last film Days of Heaven in 1978.
He makes good cinema and the rest of Hollywood seems to agree as actors scramble to work with him. In The Tree of Life Brad Pitt and Sean Penn take on the lead roles.
Not much is known about the plot of this film (something else that Malick is known for). The plot synopsis on IMDB simply reads:
The story centers around a family with three boys in the 1950s. The eldest son witnesses the loss of innocence.
Watch the trailer and see for yourself... but it looks very good and I am intrigued.
