Blockbuster season is upon us, and we invited Amanda Trice to sit in with us to discuss one of the biggest of the summer. Stalwart leading man Brad Pitt plays the lead in “Tree of Life.” Pitt plays O’Brien, an inventor and thrill seeker. He and his estranged wife, played by Jessica Chastain, get themselves in to a number of ill-advised predicaments in this rom/com/thriller which can only be described as Inspector Gadget meets Mission Impossible. In the middle there’s some sort of hokeyness about our place in the universe, and how we deal with loss, and the nature of God, but that portion of the film is fleeting. Mostly it’s about Brad Pitt fighting dinosaurs.
