The Tree of Life

The Tree of Life

Nothing Stands Still
  • I need a better tailor.

The film follows the life journey of the eldest son, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father. He 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. The film has been compared favourably with Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, although they films are very different, they both examine big issues.
