Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release The Tree of Life on Blu-ray Disk Combo Pack October 11.
Features so far include Exploring the Tree of Life, a 30-minute documentary on the making of the film that will include interviews with the cast, the crew, and directors Christopher Nolan and David Fincher, who have been influenced by director Terrence Malick’s work.
An Austin resident, Malick has one of the least prolific careers of any revered director. The Tree of Life is his impressionistic story of a family in 1950’s Waco, Texas. Told through the eyes of young Jack, we see him grow up under a domineering father (Brad Pitt) and an angelic mother (Jessica Chastain). When a tragedy shatters his innocence, he struggles as an adult (played by Sean Penn) to find meaning out of a puzzling existence in an impenetrable world. Malick’s elliptical style helped to earn the film the Palm D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.
