About the Movie
Written and directed by Terrence Malick, TO THE WONDER is a romantic drama about men and women grappling with love and its many phases and seasons — passion, sympathy, obligation, sorrow and indecision — and the way these forces merge together and drift apart, transforming, destroying and reinventing the lives they touch. Starring Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem, this deeply moving, visual film intermingles love, nature and spirit. “All things work together for the good.”

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The individually ravishing but loosely bound shots reduce whatever weight the story might have to the trivial narcissism of Caribbean-travel commercials.
Fresh: "To the Wonder" finds Malick pursuing a form of visual storytelling that is closer to chamber music, or symphonic rapture, than conventional film narrative.
Rotten: "To the Wonder" is a trailer for itself, although it could be mistaken for a high-end perfume commercial ...
Fresh: What is most affecting is Malick's intent. He plainly devised the story to give him a series of panels for the expression of feeling.
Overall, I thought the film was pointless. Really, nonsense telling for almost two hours a plot that is pretty obvious. If you're not very awaken, you might snore during the film.
A complete waste of my time. I loathed every moment.
Only made it through the first 30 minutes. I just couldn't get past how slow and uninteresting this movie was. I had high hopes and was deeply disappointed.
