      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      Terrence Malick's singularly deliberate style may prove unrewarding for some, but for patient viewers, Tree of Life is an emotional as well as visual treat. Read critic reviews

Jack has a contentious relationship with his father (Brad Pitt), but gets along well with his beautiful mother (Jessica Chastain). As an adult, Jack (Sean Penn) struggles with his past and tries to make sense of his childhood, while also grappling with bigger existential issues.

        20 minutes of a family dealing with grief. 120 minutes of shots of leaves and trees and sunlight and waves 2 minutes of dinosaurs

        A cinematic mistake and mess in every conceivable way, The Tree of Life is only worth watching for it's stunning visuals. Everything else is incoherent, lacks focus, or just feels overly complicated to point of comedy. I understood what the movie was attempting to say and do - it just didn't understand it itself.
