From Terrence Malick, the acclaimed director of such classic films as  "Badlands", "Days of Heaven" and "The Thin Red Line", "The Tree of Life" is the impressionistic story of a Midwestern family in the 1950s. 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. Through Malick's signature imagery,  we see how both brute nature and spiritual grace shape not only our  lives as individuals and families, but all life.
