Summer's Golden Dozen, #1: 'The Tree Of Life'

In Theaters: May 27th

An original movie of dramatic ambition and poetic grandeur coming out in summer. I must be dreaming! Starring Brad Pitt as a 1950s husband and the father of a boy who grows up to be Sean Penn, the upcoming film believes in holding its details close, a habit for director Terrence Malick (Badlands, Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line, The New World), a genuine master craftsman. Don't panic – there are dinosaurs!
