Friday, December 30 at 7:30 p.m. -- THE TREE (2010) Starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Morgana Davies and Marton Csokas; Not Rated; 100 minutes.
Blindsided with anguish after her husband’s sudden death, Dawn -- along with her four young children -- struggles to make sense of life without him. Eight-year-old Simone becomes convinced that her father is whispering to her through the leaves of the gargantuan fig tree that towers over their house. The family is initially comforted by its presence, but then the tree’s enormous roots slowly begin to encroach on the abode and threaten their fragile existence.
