The Tree of Life (12A)

Dir: Terence Malick.138 minutes, U.S.A., 2011.

14, 15 Sep. at 8pm.
17 & 18 Sep. at 3pm

Unconventionally structured with free-flowing, elliptical lyricism, Terence Malick’s Cannes prize-winner touches on the Big Bang, the birth of dinosaurs, and the tense household of Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain’s parents, whose oldest son (Hunger McCracken) – played as an adult by Sean Penn, and functioning as the director’s proxy – grapples with his contradictory feelings towards both his father and His Heavenly Father. A religious rumination on humanity’s light/dark warring heart and the extent of the Almighty’s hand in our fates.
