The Tree Of Life - film trailer

The Tree Of Life poster

The Tree Of Life won Terrence Malick the Palme d’Or this year. It’s his first film in six years and stars Brad Pitt, Sean Penn and Jessica Chastain.

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 the 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.

The film is written and directed by Malick.

UK release: 8 July 2011
