The Tree of Life is the impressionistic story of a Midwestern family in the 1950's. The film follows the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father (Brad Pitt). Jack (played as an adult by Sean Penn) finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith.

    Avoid this movie at all cost. Its confusing, pointless, goes way too long and just don't end. Pretentiousness personified. I don't care if you think my review is hasty and angry. I'm sure of this, this is a bad film.



    Terrence Malick where ever you are, you are only a level above Micheal Bay !
