Malick went on to tackle early American history with 2005's The New World, exploring the lives of Pocahontas and Captain John Smith. Starring Q'orianka Kilcher, Colin Farrell and Christian Bale, the film received warm reviews.
With 2011's The Tree of Life, Malick delivered a fascinating cinematic experience. Much of the film centers on a Texas family in the 1950s. In the film, Brad Pitt plays the father and Jessica Chastain plays the mother; their characters have very different ideologies, and their son, Jack, is caught between these clashing and contradictory philosophies. This very human story is mixed with an exploration of larger themes. As Justin Chang described it in Variety, Tree of Life is "a transfixing odyssey through time and memory that melds a young boy's 1950s upbringing with a magisterial rumination on the earth's origins." While some derided the project for being too pretentious or abstract, the movie won the Palme d'Or Award at the Cannes Film Festival. Malick also picked up his second Academy Award nomination for best director for the project.
Following Tree of Life, Malick began working on a number of new projects. His romantic drama To the Wonder with Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams debuted at several film festivals in 2012, receiving mixed reviews. Around the same time, he completed filming on another drama with Christian Bale and Natalie Portman, Knight of Cups. Additionally, tackling a more philosophical project, Malick worked with Brad Pitt and Emma Thompson on the film Voyage of Time.
