Movie Night! "Tree of Life": Cosmic Beauty on the Small Screen"

with Kristen Gunn & Elizabeth Bickley at Common Grounds, 400 Rugby Road

Who are we and how did we get here? Why do we exist? The astonishingly beautiful film “Tree of Life” written and directed by Terrance Malick, ponders some of the hardest and most persistent questions, the kind that leave adults speechless when children ask them. All the while, it captures the story of a Texan family in the 1950s from the standpoint of eternity. Familiar summer scenes of spraying garden hoses, kids throwing a baseball, and parents quarreling reach towards greater significance, reminding us that what may seem small scale is interconnected with what’s grand.  

Screen the film with us--and then join the conversation. Popcorn and candy, too.
