Days of Heaven
Thursday, June 28
On the run from the law, Bill (Richard Gere), his girlfriend Abby (Brooke Adams), and his young sister (Linda Manz) find work in the fields of an ailing Texas farmer (Sam Shepard). When the farmer falls for Abby, Bill encourages her to marry him, believing they stand to inherit his fortune—until the marriage proves to have a restorative effect. Terrence Malick’s cinema poem teems with wondrous imagery, painterly compositions, and haunting “magic hour” light.
