Winner of Best Cinematography at the 1979 Academy Awards, and one of the most critically-acclaimed films of all time, Days of Heaven (1978) is a moving story about two men who love the same woman. Richard Gere stars as a fugitive from the slums of Chicago who finds himself pitted against a shy, rich Texan (Sam Shepard) for the love of Abby (Brooke Adams). An extraordinary cinematic achievement of sight and sound by writer-director Terrence Malick.

“Terrence Malick’s ethereal, windswept ballad of love, lust, and nature’s wrath remains an otherworldly triumph.”
