The Tree of Life- Movie


The Tree Of Life

I saw the movie The Tree of Life during a film festival in our area recently. It was a different type of movie where there are many shots of the universe and the beginning of life on earth. The story centers around a family from Texas during the 1950's. As one son dies at the age of 19,and the mother is grieving, the family tries to cope with his loss. The other son Jack is adrift as he thinks about his brother everyday.During their childhood their father was a very strict on how they were brought up. Although he loved them very much. Their mother was more affectionate and more sympathetic towards them.Their life was not easy during that time, with their father losing his job and the family moving to a different location to live.The movie ends with the same mysterious light that it began with in the beginning.
