The Tree of Life Gets a Release Date

Good news, folks. Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life “is definitely set for release in November,” according to Bob Berney, president of Apparition Films. It had previously been reported (and hoped) that the film would premiere at Cannes, which is apparently still a possibility.
