Earlier this week, Terrence Malick, director of such films as The Thin Red Line, launched the trailer of his upcoming movie , The Tree of Life. This first trailer gives a glimpse of what the storyline will be, but is really more like a teaser, showcasing incredible images with a very powerful soundtrack.
IMDB’s synopsis reads “The story centers around a family with three boys in the 1950s. The eldest son witnesses the loss of innocence.”, and the trailer definitely gives this overall impression, and also that we’ll see the eldest son during his adult years. This doesn’t look like a film that will be easy to watch, but this fact will most likely be largely compensated by the A+ cinematography.
If I’m not mistaken, this is the first time that Brad Pitt and Sean Penn are co-starring in a movie, but it seems they’ll probably not be interacting much as Sean Penn will play the later years of Brad Pitt’s son.
Very anxious to see this one.
