The New World


Many classic films are just as powerful today as when they were first released. We add such films from many genres to our schedule throughout the season. Many are shown on the occasion of their rereleases, in fresh, new or restored prints.

Trying to convey the rapturous response this film creates in some viewers, critic Matt Zoller Seitz wrote that, "Other movies have fans. The New World has disciples." A true landmark in contemporary filmmaking!

Malick's earthbound-yet-metaphysical retelling of the 17th-century settling of the Jamestown colony and the romance between Captain John Smith and Pocahontas (whose name is never stated in the film) is perhaps Malick's most remarkable and towering achievement to date. With Colin Farrell, Q’Orianka Kilcher, and Christian Bale. (135 mins., 35mm)
