The Tree of Life

Not a tremendous Brad Pitt fan, but he's okay in places. This is one of those

The stars of the show, though, are the two 'brothers' who star as the young
children of Pitt's character, and the Mom (Jessica Chastain.)

It's the harrowing life story of a family throughout several decades of relation-
ship, loss, and growing up. The juxtaposition of the 'other story,' the origin of
life, is beautifully rendered and gives a unique and moving viewing experience.

When the pieces of the puzzle start to come together, it's a gift of  real
perspective and a learning moment.
