Movies at the Museum: Jack Pierson Favorites

About the Film


Directed by Terrence Malick
94 minutes
Rated PG

A young couple goes on a Midwest crime spree in Terrence Malick’s hypnotic debut feature. Rebellious Kit (Martin Sheen) takes off with teen baton-twirler Holly (Sissy Spacek) after shooting her father (Warren Oates) when he tries to split up the pair. The two flee, running from the law and consequences, through the Badlands and beyond.
