    Brad Pitt Fathers Sean Penn in The Tree of Life

    Ready to get goosebumps?

    This new trailer for The Tree of Life, starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, packs a visual and emotional wallop into a breathtaking two minutes...

    Written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Terrence Malick, The Tree of Life tells the story of a tense father-son relationship and its effect upon the child's adult life. Pitt plays a stern 1950s parent who wants the best for his kid, but pushes too hard to get it. As the boy all grown up, Penn portrays a lost soul stuck in a fog, searching for meaning and answers in today's modern world.

    Not only do we get stunning dialogue and imagery depicting the forces that impact our lives—love, faith, conflict—but at the simplest level, the trailer uses the profound expressions of emotion on the actors' faces to suggest much deeper truths.

    The Tree of Life opens in theaters May 27. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think.
