ELLE reviews To the Wonder

Rachel McAdams and Ben Affleck star

MOST POPULAR

Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams and Olga Kurylenko take centre stage in Terrence Malick's latest dreamlike offering, To the Wonder.
Besotted with his French girlfriend Marina (Kurylenko), Neil (Affleck) asks her and her young daughter to move with him to America.

As Neil gets lost in work, Marina feel isolated and alone, unable to connect with her partner.

The film drifts in and out of their relationship, following Neil¹s reunion with a high school flame, Jane (McAdams) and the fate of a local priest (Skyfall's Javier Bardem).
It's a typically ethereal mood piece from Malick, who's a pro at creating an atmosphere through soundtrack and visuals with minimal dialogue.

But if you go with the flow you'll find yourself swept away with Mallick's meandering questions about relationships, religion and romance.

To The Wonder is in cinemas on Friday
