Trailer for The Better Angels looks like Lincoln crossed with Tree of Life

Call me pretentious, but I love Terence Malick movies. I love the meditative quality of the films and the artistic expression he puts into every image he films. I also acknowledge that Malick's films are not for everyone, but I can watch THE THIN RED LINE, THE NEW WORLD, and TREE OF LIFE over and over again. While Malick has multiple films in production that have yet to be released, he has produced a film coming to theaters this year that will definitely appease his fans.

THE BETTER ANGELS, directed by A.J. Edwards, looks very much like it could have been directed by Malick himself. Presented in black and white, THE BETTER ANGELS tells the story of Abraham Lincoln's childhood, years not covered in Steven Spielberg's excellent LINCOLN. But, THE BETTER ANGELS is a very haunting film as the new trailer shows, giving an eerie feel to the future President's formative years.

Starring Wes Bentley, Diane Kruger, Jason Clarke, and Britt Marling, THE BETTER ANGELS is definitely going to be for a niche audience, but it absolutely looks worth a watch. It premiered back at Sundance earlier this year to mixed reception but you can judge for yourself when it opens in limited release on November 7, 2014.
