What to See This Week: “The Tree of Life” (Duh)

What to See This Week: "The Tree of Life" (Duh)

Do I really need to lay out the reasons why you must see this film over the Memorial Day weekend? Fine, here it goes:

It’s directed by Terrence Malick. It’s his first film in six years. It reunites him with “The New World” cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, who worked wonders in “Children of Men.” It stars Brad Pitt, Sean Penn and the buzziest new red head on the block, Jessica Chastain. It received boos and applause after premiere in Cannes. It won the Palme d’Or. It has dinosaurs.

Don’t be left out of the discussion at the water cooler come Tuesday. Stop reading and go.
