Tree of Life

Friday, June 14 | 5:30pm-8:00pm

Terrence Malick’s spiritual epic The Tree of Life is one of the most ambitious films of all-time. The film explores the deepest questions about the origins of life and the creation of the universe, but it’s also centered on an intimate coming-of-age story of a young boy’s defining childhood influences. In the decade since its release, The Tree of Life has been adorned as a future classic; it received three Academy Award nominations (including Best Picture), won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, appeared on the Sight & Sound list of all-time great movies, and appeared on famed critic Roger Ebert’s personal list of ten favorite movies.  American epic experimental coming-of-age drama film written and directed by Terrence Malick. Its main cast includes Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, Hunter McCracken, Laramie Eppler, Jessica Chastain, and Tye Sheridan in his debut feature film role. The film 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.
