 “The only way to be happy is to love. Unless you love, your life will flash by.”

We recommend Terrence Malik’s The Tree of Life, a stunningly beautiful experimental film that asks the big questions: Where is God? What is our place in the universe?  Why do bad things happen to good people? The Tree of Life tells the story of a 1950s family with three sons, one of whom dies.  This is a film that will make you hug your children a little bit tighter, slow down and open your eyes to the grandeur of the world.
