In Terrence Malick's To the Wonder, Ben Affleck has the love of two beauties: Rachel McAdams and Olga Kurylenko, though the trailer doesn't give you much more than that. Javier Bardem plays a priest who provides a voice-over about love, as you see Affleck and his alternating love interests frolic and fight. Malick's characters (whose names are never spoken in the trailer or film) fall in and out of love amid gorgeous American and French backdrops of fields and nature, and you're free to make your own conclusions about the story.
I saw To the Wonder at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, and have to note that although Bardem is featured prominently in the trailer, his role in the film is brief, while McAdams's part is also much smaller than the trailer makes it seem (the focus is on the relationship between Affleck and Kurylenko). One thing the preview does represent accurately is the lack of dialogue; there is scarcely more than what's in the trailer. Still, To the Wonder is visually stunning, and if you've seen a Malick film before, you probably know what to expect. The movie will be released on April 12, and until then, you can watch the trailer after the jump.
