Hollywood heavyweights Brad Pitt and Sean Penn star in this 2011 drama which depicts life through the eyes of an 11-year-old boy during the 1950s. Jack (Penn) is one of three brothers in a family where the mother and father each contend for allegiance. As a child, he sees the world as his mother does- through the eyes of his soul. To Jack, his mother represents the way of love and mercy, whereas their father tries to teach them the world’s way of putting oneself first. His view of the world is abruptly changed, however, when he first witnesses sickness, suffering and death.
