The first clip from Terrence Malick‘s To the Wonder has been released.  In the vague semblance of a plot, Olga Kurylenko plays a woman who travels to Oklahoma to be with the man (Ben Affleck) she loves only to discover that their relationship isn’t as strong as they previously thought.  There’s also a story involving a priest (Javier Bardem) who grapples with his loneliness and has almost no narrative relation to the other plotline.  This clip does play to the amount of silence in the film, but it’s a hollow silence that carries almost no dramatic weight.

Here’s the synopsis of To the Wonder:

TO THE WONDER tells the story of Marina (Kurylenko) and Neil (Affleck), who meet in France and move to Oklahoma to start a life together, where problems soon arise. While Marina makes the acquaintance of a priest and fellow exile (Bardem), who is struggling with his vocation, Neil renews a relationship with a childhood sweetheart, Jane (McAdams). Bold and lyrical, the film is a moving, gorgeously shot exploration of love in its many forms. Written and directed by Terrence Malick.
