Haven’t been this excited to see a movie since I saw the trailer for To the Wonder. Never a Malik film I haven’t loved. Still think Lubezki was robbed for Tree of Life. That movie was simply gorgeous

It seems like trailers for Malick movies are all the same.

Not that I’m not stoked for this, but…..does anyone actually know what this movie is about?
