Knight Of Cups Almost Here

By January 28, 2015Nat-news

It has been a long wait but we’re almost there. Natalie’s Terrence Malick film will premiere at the Berlinale Film Festival on February 8th. Will Natalie be in attendance? This tweet seems to suggest she will.

The film’s Berlinale page has a full synopsis of the plot.

“Rick is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.
In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. Once again a voiceover is laid over images which also seek their own authenticity. And once again Malick seems to put the world out of joint. His symphonic flow of images contrasts cold, functional architecture with the ageless beauty of nature. Rick’s internal monologue coalesces with the voices of the women who cross his path, women who represent different principles in life: while one lives in the real world, the other embodies beauty and sensuality. Which path will Rick choose? In the city of angels and the desert that surrounds it, will he find his own way?”

Thanks to Belerofonte and Lightscamerareaction.

    From the trailer it seems that the woman who “lives in the real world” is Cate Blanchett (maybe??). So the other who “embodies beauty and sensuality” is Natalie… So she plays a woman who belongs to Bale’ s imagination?! That sounds interesting to me…

    Excuse me, does anybody know the closing of the Berlin festival also usually attend the same celebrity as the opening?
