I like movie trailers. So sue me.

“The Tree Of Life” Trailer Is Preeettyy!

There were so many images I could have used for this post’s header photo, but I went with the comparatively boring title card.

I’m not really sure what The Tree of Life, from director Terrence Malick (The Thin Red Line) is all about, but I do know that this is one of the most beautiful trailers I’ve seen–well, ever. Please watch it. Even if you have no interest in the film, just watch the trailer.

Luckily, Fox Searchlight provided this plot synopsis:

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.

There you have it, I suppose. The Tree of Life hits theaters May 27th, 2011.
