Here we go, folks - Terrence Malick’s TREE OF LIFE is coming closer and closer to its release. Last week, we got our first look at LIFE and finally got official word that it will premiere at Cannes; today we have the first trailer and poster. This film has taken its time to get released and has grown to become one of the most talked-about films in quite some time.

THE TREE OF LIFE stars Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain and their small family growing up in the 1950s. The film follows their son Jack through adolescence to adulthood (adult Jack is played by Sean Penn), where he tries to patch up his rocky relationship with his father (Pitt) and seek answer questions regarding his faith. Hit the break to view the trailer and poster, along with the film's official synopsis.

Official Synopsis:
From Terrence Malick, the acclaimed director of such classic films as Badlands, Days of Heaven and The Thin Red Line, The Tree of Life is the impressionistic story of a Midwestern family in the 1950's. The film follows the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father (Brad Pitt). Jack (played as an adult by Sean Penn) finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith. Through Malick's signature imagery, we see how both brute nature and spiritual grace shape not only our lives as individuals and families, but all life.

THE TREE OF LIFE opens on May 27, 2011.
