Rare Screenshots from The Tree of Life Extended Cut (2018) Part VIII

Filming for this extended scene took place in Smithville’s (Texas) downtown area. In addition to screenshots from the Criterion film, I included a few photos from my visit in March of 2019.

While much of the filming was done in Smithville, such as the O’Brien homes, neighborhoods and alley ways, and a relatively short restaurant scene, little of the downtown area was shown in the original version with the exception of Mrs. O’Brien walking with her boys on the sidewalk nearer to the end of the original film.

This scene was shot in downtown Smithville, Texas. You can see the First State Bank of Smithville, Texas on the building front in the background
