Knight of Cups


Knight of Cups
Terrence Mallick's lastest work has confounded even his fans. We follow a writer on an odyssey through the playgrounds of Los Angeles and Las Vegas as he undertakes a search for love and self. Even as he moves through a desire-laden landscape of mansions, resorts, beaches and clubs, he grapples over complicated relationships with his brother and father. His quest to break the spell of his disenchantment takes him on a series of adventures with six alluring women. He moves in a daze through a strange and overwhelming dreamscape... but can he wake up to the beauty, humanity and rhythms of life around him? The deeper he searches, the more the journey becomes his destination.
