Studio/Distributor: Fox Searchlight Pictures
Running Time: 138 minutes
Director: Terrence Malick
Synopsis: Malick wrote this story of a lost soul (Sean Penn) looking for the meaning of life with Brad Pitt featuring as his father in flashbacks. This is only Malick's fifth film as a director. After two hits in the 1970s -- "Badland" (1973) and "Days of Heaven" (1978) -- it would be two decades before he made another film. His return -- the 1998 WWII drama "The Thin Red Line" -- was overshadowed by Steven Spielberg's "Saving Private Ryan" but still contended for seven Oscars including Best Picture as well as bids by Malick for both helming and scripting. However, his 2005 picture "A New World" was a dud, failing to win over critics or the public.
Box Office: $13 million (USA); $41 million (Rest of World)
Awards: Cannes Film Festival - Palme D'Or
