Watching for... THE BURIAL (Terrence Malick)

"Oklahoma native son Terrence Malick wrapped shooting on The Burial in hometown Bartlesville, Tulsa, and Pawhuska. Ben Affleck and Olga Kurylenko star as a 'loveless' couple, along with Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem (as a priest)." Film Comment, January-February 2011

"Set over a period of years, the film stars Affleck as Neil, a failed writer stuck in a loveless marriage with Marina (Kurylenko), whose expiring visa put pressure on Neil to propose. Both Neil and Marina seek guidance from Father Quintana (Bardem), a priest frustrated by his inability to live his own life because he’s too busy advising his parishioners on theirs." The Film Stage
