DAYS OF HEAVEN
In 1910, a Chicago steelworker (Richard Gere) accidentally kills his supervisor, and he, his girlfriend (Brooke Adams), and his little sister (Linda Manz) flee to the Texas panhandle, where they find work harvesting wheat in the fields of a stoic farmer (Sam Shepard). A love triangle, a swarm of locusts, a hellish fire—Malick captures it all with dreamlike authenticity, creating a timeless American idyll that is also a gritty evocation of turn-of-the-century labor, finding in this second film -more loosely written than Badlands and beautifully photographed by Nestor Almendros- what will become his trademark style.
New 4K Restoration by the Criterion Collection with support of Paramount Pictures and Park Circus, supervised by Mr. Malick.
