Brad Pitt: 'The Tree of Life' Wins Palme d'Or

Director Terrence Malick‘s The Tree of Life won the coveted Palme d’Or prize from the jury of the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.

The flick, which tells the impressionistic story of a Midwestern family in the 1950′s, follows the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood (Hunter McCracken) to his disillusioned adult years (Sean Penn) as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father. Jack finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith. Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain play the parents.

Nicolas Winding Refn picked up Best Director for Drive, Jean Dujardin won Best Actor for The Artist, and Kirsten Dunst received Best Actress for Melancholia.
