Terrence Malick collaborator A.J. Edwards’ stunning debut dramatizes Abraham Lincoln’s formative experiences, refracted through visions of nature and history familiar to fans of The Tree of Life or The New World. Set in wild Indiana woodland, it charts a turbulent upbringing, foregrounding two women – played by Diane Kruger and Brit Marling – who shaped the young Lincoln’s outlook.
