  2. The tree of life is a story about an 11 year old boy, about how he finds joy and peace. The star cast includes Brad Pitt and sean penn's quite exciting combination. Yesterday. i was watching the clips of The tree of Life online, and it was also different than the others.Looks like a good movie.
