The Tree of Life
Thursday, December 22, 2011, 7:00 p.m.
With Special Photographic Effects Supervisor Douglas Trumbull in personDir. Terrence Malick. 2011, 139 mins.
With Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, Jessica Chastain, Hunter McCracken. One of the movie events of this year (and probably the past decade), this mammoth work of cinematic poetry is Malick’s personal vision of a young boy’s coming of age in suburban 1950s Texas. It’s also a deeply philosophical take on life, death, and the whole shebang, featuring an astonishing depiction of the creation of the world. It must be experienced in a theater.
