BEYOND THE WONDER: TERRENCE MALICK EXPANDED

Synopsis

In Osage County, Oklahoma, a mysterious yet familiar priest arrives and bears witness to accounts from residents sharing a heartrending array of memories. Some subjects have suffered, some have caused suffering, all are struggling as they confront death, life, and demons both within and without.

Our take

What served as background texture in Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder is foregrounded in this lyrical companion piece, assembled from unused footage. Expanding on Javier Bardem’s supporting role, Thy Kingdom Come blurs fiction and reality for a tender portrait of the feature’s small Oklahoma town.
