For most of the time the part of Sean Penn in The Tree of Life consists of him walking aimlessly among skyscrapers and scorched earth. In the award winning new epic by director Terrence Malick Penn is the grown-up Jack, remembering his youth in Waco, Texas and still grieving over the death of his younger brother. Looking for the meaning of life he asks questions to God (an imaginary friend for adults) and goes back to the origins of the universe. At the end of the movie Earth is devoured by the sun, which is not a spoiler but just a sad fact of life. The Tree of Life is not the first film in which Sean Penn lives in a world on the brink of collapse.

In which movie does Sean Penn permanently fly around earth, doing voice-overs in an attempt to explain the unfolding story?
