Terrence Malick is a much-celebrated filmmaker whose talents have drawn some of the biggest stars to join his movies, even in small roles. Tree of Life tells the story of a Texan family dealing with loss and conflict in raising their young children. Chastain co-stars with Brad Pitt as the parents of the family.
The movie was divisive for audiences, but most critics appreciated Malick’s singular vision in this ambitious and multilayered story. For those who can accept the unusual style, the stunning visuals, and emotional storytelling are worth it.
