Midweek Movies: The Tree of Life

Time for another movie, folks! Today we bring you The Tree of Life - a family drama starring Sean Penn, Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain.

Set in the 1950s, The Tree of Life revolves around the lives of three boys. The eldest son, Jack, witnesses the loss of innocence when he realizes that the life he once knew – one that is wonderfully pleasant through the eyes of a child – is not as perfect as he thought it was, when sickness, suffering and death troubled his world.

Sean Penn plays the role of the grown-up Jack, who is trying to figure out his life – and this is where a series of beautiful imagery comes in – a documentation of life and how world came to be.

    It was not my favorite Terrence Malick film, but the photography in it was spectacular.
    The story line was very vague. I felt as though it was an impressionistic movie.
