SYNOPSIS

The New World is an epic adventure set amid the encounter of European and Native American cultures during the founding of the Jamestown settlement in 1607. Inspired by the legend of John Smith and Pocahontas, acclaimed filmmaker Terrence Malick transforms this classic story into a sweeping exploration of love, loss and discovery, both a celebration and elegy of the America that was… and the America that was yet to come. Against the dramatic and historically rich backdrop of a pristine Eden inhabited by a great native civilisation, ‘The New WorldÂ’ is a dramatised tale of two strong-willed characters, a passionate and noble young native woman (QÂ’ORIANKA KILCHER) and an ambitious soldier of fortune (COLIN FARRELL), who find themselves torn between the undeniable requirements of civic duty and the inescapable demands of the heart.
