Director: Terence Malick.

After living an idyllic life with Pocahontas and her tribe, John Smith (Colin Farrell) returns to Jamestown to discover the settlement ravaged by pestilence, corruption and crime. This scene shows the boys bringing Smith up-to-date on the state of Jamestown, with an emphasis on the lilting rhythms of their speech rather than the content of their words.
