Review: ‘Ad Astra’ Brad Pitt remakes ‘The Tree of Life’ – The Washington Free Beacon

Eight years ago, long before his dazzling and surely Oscar-winning turn this summer in Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood, Brad Pitt gave a magnificent performance in The Tree of Life as a loving martinet father in 1950s Texas with Sean Penn as his pensive son, ruminating in endless voice-overs about his pains and sorrows and the origins of the universe. This weekend, you can see Pitt in a virtual remake of The Tree of Life, in which he plays the son, not the father. It’s called Ad Astra, and like The Tree of Life, it’s both good and awful.
