Ever since I saw the trailer for Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life last week, I have been waiting for it to premiere online. I’ve seen the trailer twice now in theaters and both times it absolutely mesmerized me. (So much so that when a group of teens who had obviously never seen a Malick film before starting laughing at the trailer, I almost turned around to shout at them for ruining the trailer.)
The Tree of Life follows Jack from his 1950s Midwestern childhood through his years as a disillusioned adult and as he attempts to repair his relationship with his father (Brad Pitt). Sean Penn plays Jack as an adult. The trailer highlights Malick’s majestic style and will enthrall you.Vodpod videos no longer available.
