Terrence Malick is one of the most thrilling and charismatic directors working in America. He's not prolific and his films - like some wine -- only seem to be released in good years. This is one of those vintage years. His new feature,The Tree of Life, is in cinemas this week and Francine Stock talks to one of its stars, Jessica Chastain, about working with Malick.
Francine will also be assessing David Schwimmer's new film Trust and Bertrand Tavernier's The Princess of Montpensier. Even though the stories they tell are separated by five hundred years both focus on the enduring sexual allure of teenage girls and both act as cautionary tales. To round things off the keyboard wizard,Neil Brand, is on hand to explain how music helps to conjure the ghostly and the unseen into cinematic life.
