Happy hump day everyone! It is Wednesday which means a new scene. This week I am sharing a scene from the film “The tree of life.” It is a little more well known, but not many have seen it before, which is kind of a crime. Now, I am not a religious person and I don’t like preachy movies, but this one does deal with a bit of religion. Mostly about abstract things like what happens after death, miracles, and the secret powers of the world. Nothing preachy. This film is great for a couple of reasons. One, the cinematography is EXCELLENT. One of the most beautifully shot films I have ever seen. And the other is the acting. Brad Pitt, Sean Penn and Jessica Chastain were the big names in this little underrated movie, but the actor who played the main boy was absolutely amazing. He brought such power and emotion to his role for being a young actor. But more on that later. For now, here is a scene which I thought was very true and touching. Most of the scenes in the film are but this one came to my mind first. I love the use of music and the voiceover by Jessica is wonderful.

I'm from Florida, a junior at the University of Central Florida. Currently, I'm a political science-IR major. I'm an avid traveler and explorer of all things worth exploring. Hoarder of books and movies, and caretaker to my beloved camera and piano. I think conformity and math are terrible, but vegetarianism and nature conservation are awesome. Traveling is also a huge passion of mine. I thank my parents for that, as they took my two sisters and I around the world from the time we were in diapers; now I'll forever have the travel bug. I have a variety of interests from photography to theatre to the great outdoors. Growing up, I always felt an urge to get out in the world, explore and be actively involved in efforts dedicated to making changes in the world, impacting something or someone in a inspirational and positive way. It's important to notice what is happening in the world, to fight for what is good and what is right. As someone who is diagnosed with clinical depression and ADHD, I am an advocate for mental health education and thus one of the cornerstones of this blog is writing to inspire others;to say, whether it's through a review or a poem, that the human experience is a hard one but worthwhile. This blog covers entertainment, travel, current events and personal pieces as well. Thanks for stopping by! :)
