Mondavi Center Presenting Program

Directed by Terrence Malick (1978)
Rated PG, 1 hour and 34 minutes

Director Terrence Malick’s beautifully shot period piece, which won an Oscar for its cinematography, tells the story of Bill (Richard Gere), an early-1900s Chicago steel-mill worker who flees town after accidentally killing a man. In search of a better life, he moves his girlfriend Abby (Brooke Adams) and younger sister to the wheat fields of Texas. But they run into tragedy when a wealthy farmer (Sam Shepard) falls for Abby. Malick’s characteristic voiceover is from the perspective of Bill’s younger sister.
