Bartlesville-bred Terrence Malick’s latest film, “To the Wonder,” is releasing Friday in some U.S. theaters as well as via Video on Demand. The film’s release on VOD ensures that the film will be able to reach those who do not live near a theater showing the film and can be accessed via multiple on demand outlets.
“To the Wonder” is a romantic drama centered on an American man (Ben Affleck) who reconnects with a woman from his hometown (Rachel McAdams) after his relationship with a European woman (Olga Kurylenko) falls apart. It was filmed in the Bartlesville and Pawhuska areas of Northeast Oklahoma and showcases Oklahoma’s natural beauty. The film participated in the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate program provided by the Oklahoma Film & Music Office.
The film is showing at 7 and 10 p.m. Friday at the Bartlesville Community Center, 300 SE Adams Blvd. For information, go to www.bartlesvillecommunitycenter.com.
The film opens April 26 at Tulsa’s Circle Cinema (www.circlecinema.com) and May 9 at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art (www.okcmoa.com).
Look for my review of “To the Wonder” on Friday.
