Special Meaning

I saw the below film in a theater. It is not for mainstream audiences who think WWE wrestling is an actual sport. For those who think, or who consider religion is really about the cosmos, the below film might be up your ally. For me, it is about understanding my upbringing in the time I grew up. For parents of my generation, it might be nostalgia with insight.

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 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. 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.
