4K RESTORATION — Australian Premiere

Simply one of the most ravishing films ever made, luminous in a way no other movie has been.” - London Evening Standard 

Malick’s masterpiece is one of the most original, complex films in the contemporary cinema.” - Michel Ciment, Positif 

In 1915, migrant workers Bill (Richard Gere), Abby (Brooke Adams) and Linda (Linda Manz) take jobs working for a wealthy farmer (Sam Shepard) during a wheat harvest in the Texan Panhandle. Lovers Bill and Abby pretend to be brother and sister so that Abby can marry the terminally ill farmer and inherit his fortune. Most of the film was shot during the Golden Hour, the brief time after sunrise and before sunset, so revered by cinematographers. The result earned Nestor Almendros an Academy Award for Best Cinematography and is regarded as one of the most beautiful films ever made. Terrence Malick was awarded Best Director at Cannes. Cinema Reborn presents the Australian premiere of the 4K Ultra High Definition restoration.

Introduced by Lynden Barber at Ritz Cinemas and Jake Wilson at Lido Cinemas.

Alongside the unforgettable cinematography, sits Ennio Morricone’s soulful, aching score. It is impeccably in tune with Malick’s vision and is among some of the late composer’s most timeless work.” - Keith Garlington 

One of the greatest cinematic achievements of the 1970s.” - Variety 

So beautiful that it touches heaven itself.” - Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle 

It is the closest to poetry in motion that I have ever seen.” - Andrew Ross, Salon.com
