The New World producer Sarah Green is blowing dubious smoke in a piece by New York Times writer Steve Chagollan about Terrence Malick’s latest film, which New Line is opening on 12.25. “First and foremost we’ve created a love story,” Green declares. “We’re definitely not doing a historical piece. We try to set it properly; we try to give that background and that feeling, but we focus on the love story.” It’s too early to riff about The New World — which is in many ways rapturous and magnificent, by the way — but Green is being truthful only in a partial sense, and in an overall looking- at-the-entire-movie sense her statement is a flat-out crock.
