The Tree

Charlotte Gainsbourg (Antichrist, I'm Not There.) stars in this near-mystical drama from filmmaker Julie Bertuccelli (Since Otar Left). Blindsided by her husband's sudden death, Dawn (Gainsbourg) and her four young children seek a new start in the gorgeous Australian outback. There, her youngest becomes convinced that her father is speaking to her through the leaves of a gargantuan fig tree that towers over their house. Initially comforted by its presence, the family soon becomes concerned when the tree's roots begin to encroach on their home's very foundations. But little Simone (astounding newcomer Morgana Davies) turns environmental activist, refusing to let the tree be felled. 100 minutes
