BRAD PITT’S “THE TREE OF LIFE:” ANTIDOTE TO THE ACTION MOVIE
We were immediately enthralled when we saw this trailer for “The Tree of Life.” Director Terrence Malick also gave us the exquisite “Days of Heaven.” It takes place in the midwest in the ‘50’s and it’s the story of a little boy’s innocent journey through childhood with a dreamy mother and a realistic father. He ends up struggling with disillusionment in the modern world. Brad Pitt plays the dad and Sean Penn is the little boy when he grows up. Malick’s visuals are always so extraordinary that they stay with you for a long, pleasant time.
