To The Wonder

Critics Consensus

To the Wonder demonstrates Terrence Malick's gift for beautiful images, but its narrative is overly somber and emotionally unsatisfying.

Movie Info

TO THE WONDER tells the story of Marina (Kurylenko) and Neil (Affleck), who meet in France and move to Oklahoma to start a life together, where problems soon arise. While Marina makes the acquaintance of a priest and fellow exile (Bardem), who is struggling with his vocation, Neil renews a relationship with a childhood sweetheart, Jane (McAdams). Bold and lyrical, the film is a moving, gorgeously shot exploration of love in its many forms. Written and directed by Terrence Malick.(c) Official Site

Audience Reviews for To The Wonder

  • Feb 17, 2018
    Beautiful to look at, but goes absolutely nowhere and takes forever to do it. Rachel McAdams is in it for about 20 minutes, so if she’s your motivation to watch (which I hate to admit is the main reason I picked it up), choose something else. It’s very open to interpretation as there is very little dialogue and it seems to have religion as a strong theme too which may not appeal to all.

    An impressionistic portrait of a love affair between a French woman and an American man. Nothing happens in this well-intentioned bore that seems to be fashioned from leftover scraps of THE TREE OF LIFE.

    Couldn't finish this movie. Where Tree of Life leaves you captivated, To the Wonder leaves you bored
