1978| DCP | USA| D: Terrence Malick

A screen poem about life in America in 1916 that captures the exquisite beauty of the natural world surrounding the characters.

A steelworker, Bill (Richard Gere) flees Chicago after a fight with his boss; he takes his little sister Linda (Linda Manz) and girlfriend Abby (Brooke Adams) with him.

Bill and Abby pretend to be siblings to prevent gossip. The three are hired as seasonal workers to work land owned by a rich farmer (Sam Shepard).

When Bill overhears a doctor suggesting the farmer is terminally ill, he encourages Abby to marry the farmer so they can inherit his wealth when he dies.

‘Simply one of the most ravishing films ever made, luminous in a way that no other movie has been’ - London Evening Standard

LINDA MANZ: ‘A TOUGH LITTLE REBEL’
We pay tribute to Linda Manz (1961-2020), the American actress and self-described ‘tough little rebel’ who starred in Days of Heaven (1978) and Out of the Blue (1980).

She only made a handful of movies, but she mesmerised audiences with her starring roles for directors like Terrence Malick and Dennis Hopper.
