The New World

I hope this film does history justice and does not focus too much on the romance.

I believe both Ebert and Roper had it in their top 5 films of the year.

When I see it I'll let you know what the historian in me thinks of it.

Looks good though.

I saw the trailer for this last night and immediately wanted to see it. I love these kinds of films tho I agree, I hope the filmmaker will do the historic aspec of the film more justice than the romantic part of it which would be purely entertainment. I hope someone sees it soon and posts their review.

Yes, it looks good

I read an article yesterday about the girl who stars in it, she is Jewel's second cousin

She was only 14 at the time and her first kisses in life were Colin Farrell and Christian Bale

If you can get past Farrell's poor performance (seriously, how many more chances is this guy going to get?), the film is exceptional. Many will complain about its lethargic pace but I found this only serves to draw you in and take in the full sense of wonder onscreen. It's very strange. Not much happens a lot of the time, but you can't take your eyes off it. Like most Malick offerings, I guess.

Christian Bale is terrifically understated.

Alot of it was shot right around where I live, and considering the 400th anniversary of Jamestown is coming up next year and this area will be crawling with tourists because of it and the film, I may as well go see it

whale Rider was a great film. To bad the young girl did not win an Oscar, She deserved it. I cried when she gave that speech.

The actress in The New World is not the same actress who starred in Whale Rider. Is that what you guys are saying?

Anyway ...

I loathe Colin Farrell, but am very interested in seeing this movie.
