Welcome back to another week at Movies that Make Us! This week, we discuss a serious film for Tracy’s birthday pick, Darren Aronofsky’s The Fountain starring Hugh Jackman and Rachael Weisz.
The film consists of three storylines involving immortality and the resulting loves lost, and one man’s pursuit of avoiding this fate in this life, or beyond it. Jackman and Weisz play a set of characters bonded by love across time and space: A conquistador and his ill-fated queen, a modern-day scientist and his cancer-stricken wife, and a traveler immersed in a futuristic journey alongside aspects of his lost love and the tree of life.
It’s a metaphorical art film and we hope you’ll check it out. We want your feedback, so be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel, and then click the little bell to receive notifications when we add a new video or go live.
