Terrence Malick Retro At Toronto Cinematheque

Written by: FFT Webmaster | May 31st, 2011

Terrence Malick, whose Palme D’Or winning film THE TREE OF LIFE is set to become one of the most controversial films of the summer, will receive a mini-retrospective at the Toronto Cinematheque housed at the recently opened Bell Lightbox. New Worlds: The Films of Terrence Malick will showcase four of the director’s most compelling films, including his debut BADLANDS, THE THIN RED LINE, THE NEW WORLD and THE TREE OF LIFEMalick’s latest, which opened in US theaters this past weekend, is impressionistic story of a Midwestern family in the 1950’s and the life journey of the eldest son (played by Sean Penn) as he moves through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father (played by Brad Pitt). Through Malick’s signature imagery, we see how both brute nature and spiritual grace shape not only our lives as individuals and families, but all life.
