Award-winning film at Cannes ‘The Tree Of Life’ screens in Nenagh Arts Centre this Thursday

Terence Malick’s epic  ‘The Tree Of  Life’ screens on this Thursday 15th March at Nenagh Arts Centre.

The scale of the ambition of director Terence Malick’s film has been compared to Kubrick’s ‘2001-A Space Oddysey’. ‘A Tree Of Life ‘starts off simply enough in 1950’s America investigating the family life of a young boy – Jack. The film follows his life journey through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father (Brad Pitt). Jack (played as an adult by Sean Penn) finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith.

Peter Travers of Rolling Stone Magazine said “Shot with a poet’s eye, Malick’s film is a groundbreaker, a personal vision that dares to reach for the stars.A.O. Scott of the New York Times gave the film much praise and stated, “The sheer beauty of this film is almost overwhelming.”

 

‘The Tree Of Life’ screens at Nenagh Arts Centre at 8 p.m. on Thursday 15th March. Tickets are €7 through the Arts Centre in Banba Square on 067 34400 or can be booked online at www.nenagharts.com
