The trailer for Brad’s new movie, The Tree of Life, is finally here — and we can’t WAIT until it hits theaters!
The Tree of Life, directed by Terrence Malick, is a story about a family with three boys set in the 1950’s. Brad Pitt plays the oppressive father who tries to show his son Jack how to live, and is definitely a far cry from the loving and caring father he is in real life. Sean Penn also stars, playing the adult role of Jack. The film focuses on Jack’s journey from childhood innocence to a more harsh adulthood as he tries to find meaning in his life.
The artistic trailer shows scenes of the family throughout their lives along with beautiful scenes of the Earth and solar system. We see the sons as children growing into adults, and it makes you wonder what happened in between! We also see a different side of Brad, playing a father who seems angry and demanding enough to make his own children afraid of him. It definitely made us excited for May 2011 so we can see this movie!
