Brad Pitt: Cannes Photo Call for 'Tree of Life'

Brad Pitt: Cannes Photo Call for 'Tree of Life'

A white hot Brad Pitt keeps close to red hot co-star Jessica Chastain at the photocall for their new movie, The Tree Of Life, during the 2011 Cannes Film Festival held at Palais des Festivals on Monday (May 16) in Cannes, France.

Early reviews have been quite favorable. Variety says, “Few American filmmakers are as alive to the splendor of the natural world as Terrence Malick, but even by his standards, The Tree of Life represents something extraordinary. The iconoclastic director’s long-awaited fifth feature is in many ways his simplest yet most challenging work, a transfixing odyssey through time and memory that melds a young boy’s 1950s upbringing with a magisterial rumination on the Earth’s origins.”

THR adds that Brad gives “one of his finest performances.”

FYI: Brad, 47, suited up in Maison Martin Margiela and Tom Ford sunglasses. Jessica, 30, paired her Oscar de la Renta dress with Brian Atwood shoes. She finished her look with House of Lavande earrings.

Ouch I’m gonna get it for saying this but this guy is full of himself, wears stuff to draw attention to him, total Hollywood( look at me!) Tree of life may be a decent movie , have to wait see..

# 3

Leave him alone..

He can wear whatever he wants..

Love Brad in White.. and so into the sneakers or whatever they are.

I love that he does his own thing and to hell with the people that don’t like it..

A Man in all sense of the word.

Jessica is a pretty woman.. She fits the role very nicely..

It is unfortunate that Tree of Life is only getting a limited release and that we won’t find out how it would have done commercially if released nationwide. It has an interesting cast and it would have been interesting to see how a smaller film for Brad Pitt would do commercially.

I hope J.J. Abrams gives Brad Pitt a cameo in Star Trek 12.

@Lydia Roberts:

You have posted that comment before on other sites/threads except it was not with Brad and Tree of Life but with another film/actor.

(If I had time to think about it I could recall the film/actor)

Is this some kind of package response. I never bought into people being paid to post on websites, but I now know that it is true. There are paid posters

Your comment is not negative.. I just know that it is a package reply because it was said exactly on another thread and site.

Funny..

looks good but would be even better if he tried to go back to his ocean’s 11 look

My favourite Brad Pitt movie is Meet Joe Black (1998). It is an underappreciated and underrated classic. Everyone should watch that epic drama at least once in their life. It should have won a truckload of Oscars.

hate the greasy hair. trying too hard brad!

Woot! First day of vacation and I get Brad Pitt in all his sexy beastness!

For the folks picking on Brad’s style – it’s Brad’s style…that’s exactly why you don’t get it. I love the white on white – that’s the trend this summer – and Brad is one of the few persons, male or female, that could pull it off. And personally, I love the shades on him.
.
Can’t touch Brad’s style, I’m telling ya.

While the bulk of the film is set in the ‘50s, it also flashes all the way back to the birth of life as we know it. Yes, the rumours are true: there are dinosaurs.

If the CG dinos aren’t the most impressive ever seen, there will be few films this year to beat Tree Of Life’s overall visual splendor.

Lighting, shot composition, production design and editing are all impeccably gorgeous. The music and sound design aren’t too shabby either.

But what of the story? In a nutshell, it’s about a man, Jack (Sean Penn), reflecting on his complex relationship with his domineering dad, Mr O’Brien (Brad Pitt).

In typical Malick fashion, the narrative is splintered into a series of impressions. Montages are rife. Dialogue is sparse.

The writer/director’s signature is omnipresent, but he doesn’t smother the acting. Pitt excels as the proud patriarch, exhibiting fearsome rage in one family confrontation.

Newcomer Jessica Chastain is also fine with the confines of a somewhat idealised wife/mother role.

Wow Papa Pitt is getting great notices for his performance. I guess the paid troll can stop the fake worrying about Mama Angie. Oh well troll, there is still that great making out with a banana to look forward to.

Ouch… he is aging badly… he looks nice now, but in a few years he will be new Mickey Rourke :? Angelina better star searching for new husband to steal :) Matt Damon or Marky Mark is good choice

white……right brad you are a righteous man……NOT

Really handsome man

Pitt is all clenched jaw and grimace as the father and it’s one of his best performances to date.
