Warning: Do not go see The Tree of Life.
You think it is going to be about family and pain and beauty and God.
But instead it is just a bad dream with science movies that go on and on.
Patrick and I walked out when the science portion and whisperings to God got too much for us and we started to giggle.
I have read that the clips of nature go on for 45 minutes.
This little picture sums up the whole movie.
A story with pain.
What story does not have these elements?
It's everyone's story.
I prefer this picture to The Tree of Life.
However, Patrick and I will never forget the time we giggled in the artsy fartsy movie and high tailed it for the door.
Life is beautiful and painful and thankfully pretty funny.
