The Tree of Life is a profound and beautiful film that won the Palme d’Or Award at the Cannes Film Festival and ranked among the top films of 2011 by the National Board of Review. It is nominated for three Academy Awards (best picture, best director, and best cinematography). It is also a film very few Episcopalians have seen. This strikes me as odd, particularly in light of the director’s background.
