Highly recommend it!
I love movies that depict raw human emotion and tackle big topics and existential questions. Terrence Malick's movie does just that. It begins with a quote from the Book of Job and somehow successfully took me on a tour of God's creation of the universe, to human experience in one particular family in the 50's, to the reconnection with loved ones on the beaches of Heaven.
I can't succinctly describe this movie because it covers so much. In a way, it's more of a piece of glorious art than a mere movie. It elicited emotional and physical responses in me that were on par with the most spiritual responses I have felt from particularly beautiful pieces of classical music. The layers of the movie are intriguing, and everyone in my family took away different favorite parts that they were able to relate to and appreciate. This is a movie that you will still be pondering days after watching it.
The Tree of Life does have its weaknesses. Overall, though, a stunning piece of art.
