If you have yet to see The Tree of Life, here is your chance, this is the last week it will be showing at the Westdale Theatre. The film chronicles the life of a middle age man living in Texas in the 1950s. Director, Terrence Malick uses a series of fragmented events to piece the story together. The film won Palme d’Or at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. Despite its star studded cast, the film is anything but Hollywood and is definitely worth checking out.
