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

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Malick is employing his usual style of montage and voice-over narration but in a new, contemporary setting that makes Wonder feel like his most vital work in years."
‑ Noah Gittell, The Atlantic
"The movie plays like an undercooked pie that hasn't had enough time to cool and settle."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"To the Wonder shouldn't be passed off as "self-parody," but as Malick's self-destructed misfire."
‑ Jack Giroux, Film School Rejects
"The bursts of beauty Malick creates have true redemptive power."
‑ Michal Oleszczyk, Movie Mezzanine
"To The Wonder - the best American feature by far of 2013: beautiful, compassionate, tragic, transcendent."
‑ Gerald Peary, Arts Fuse
"Love is a many-splendored thing, except when it isn't in To the Wonder, a wispy romantic movie about the death of a romance."
‑ Michael Sragow, Orange County Register
"Essentially it's an agglomeration of Malick's worst stylistic annoyances."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Jane and Neil find themselves brushing against each other in a large field right up next to a herd of brown bison amid rustling grasses, as if grass were ever still when a camera, Malick's camera, is directed its way."
‑ Ray Pride, Newcity
"Terrence Malick's films have not been very accessible in the past. If this one is any indication, they are becoming less so. The narrative is thin, slow moving and ambiguous in places. It is moody, sombre and melancholy."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"Mesmo que apresente-se irregular, é suficientemente sensível e revelador para fazer jus à filmografia do diretor."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"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."
‑ Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic
"A thing of great beauty, but not much more."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"Instead of searching through the mysteries of the universe, Terrence Malick cuts open his heart for all to look inside."
‑ Christopher Runyon, Movie Mezzanine
"I think there's something sufficient to love about such a bold film."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"In its conventionally alienating extremes, this is probably Malick's most pure expression of his uniquely impressionistic, almost extra-sensory cinematic gifts, transporting one to a meditative wavelength of emotional experience."
‑ Michael Dequina,
