The New World is enigmatic filmmaker Terrence Malick's fourth feature in thirty years (Badlands, Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line). It's a live action retelling of the Pocahontas story first made famous in film by Disney in 1995.

Captain John Smith was a founder of the first English colony in America in 1607 - Jamestown, Virginia. Malick's film is a romantic imagining of the relationship he forms with not only his new surroundings but the indigenous population. Smith falls in love with Princess Pocahontas, the daughter of the King of the very first tribe of Native Americans. The story is told through her character's eyes, as played by 15 year-old Peruvian actress Q'orianka Kilcher, four years older than when the real Smith and Pocahontas actually met.

The New World is a work of art: transcendental, ethereal, atmospheric: beautiful to look at and listen to. Malick applies his wonderfully visual style to a story very much grounded in mud, grime and starvation for the English invaders who are grappling with surviving this harsh new world.
