OMG! The new film from acclaimed writer/director Terrence Malick, titled The Tree of Life, looks simply amazing! Just watch the newly released trailer below … it stars Brad Pitt, Sean Penn and Jessica Chastain – I bet this film is going to garner tons of accolades but next awards season since it’s not opening until next summer!
From Terrence Malick, the acclaimed director of such classic films as Badlands, Days of Heaven and The Thin Red Line, The Tree of Life is the impressionistic story of a family in the 1950’s. 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.
