Since the trailer won't spoil too many details about the elusive premise, here's a couple of things you should know about the upcoming drama The Tree of Life, starring Sean Penn, Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain:
1) It's VERY eagerly-anticipated and touted as a "beautiful" look at life and the world around us.
2) It's written and directed by Terrence Malick (The Thin Red Line, Badlands).
3) It's set in the 1950s, in the Midwest.
4) In short, Sean Penn plays a grown-up Jack, the wonder-filled child of Mr. and Mrs. O'Brien (Pitt and Chastain, respectively) who, after witnessing suffering, sickness, and death, his views harden and he becomes a disillusioned adult looking for meaning in a modern world. Being raised by two very opposite parents (The mother is more gentle and father is eager to teach him the stringent way of life), Jack has to later teach himself how to regain hope.
5) It hits theaters May 27, 2011.
