Socialist Worker

Tree of Life

Issue No. 2259

An ambitious new work from the director of visionary films including The Thin Red Line, The New World and Badlands.

It stars Sean Penn as a man remembering his disciplinarian father (Brad Pitt) and growing up in the 1950s.

Some critics think this meditation on life and mortality slips over into pretension, but others think it is the director’s masterpiece.
