"The Tree of Life" (2011)
Movie Synopsis: "The Tree of Life" is the impressionistic story of a Midwestern family in the 1950s. The film follows the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father (Brad Pitt). Jack (played as an adult by Sean Penn) finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith. Through Malick’s signature imagery, we see how both brute nature and spiritual grace shape not only our lives as individuals and families, but all life.
Brad Pitt, Jessica Chastain, Sean Penn, Tye Sheridan and Laramie Eppler pictures from Terrence Malick's trippy drama.
What's the trailer all about? Well, it's a Terrence Malick film so you probably won't be any closer to understanding what's going on after you view the trailer than you were before.
