Hailed by critics the world over as the cinema event of the year. Cinema icon Terrence Malick’s existential epic has polarized critics and audiences with its fragmented, non- linear narrative style. Speculated to be autobiographical,Tree of Life is a family drama, starring Sean Penn and Brad Pitt, that chronicles the origins and meaning of life by way of a middle-aged man’s childhood memories of his family living in 1950s Texas, interspersed with imagery of the origins of the universe and the inception of life on Earth. From the director of the iconic films: Days of Heaven, Badlands, and Thin Red Line. Winner of 2011 Palme D’or at Cannes.
