Why to Watch - The Fountain

One things for certain, Darren Aronofsky makes some trippy movies. If you’re a fan of his then add this to your list. If you aren’t then go read a book you pathetic loser.



The Fountain (2006) Drama, Mystery, Romance, Sci-Fi | 97min | November 22, 2006 (United States) 7.2
Director: Darren AronofskyWriter: Darren Aronofsky, Ari HandelStars: Hugh Jackman, Rachel Weisz, Sean Patrick ThomasSummary: Three stories - one each from the past, present, and future - about men in pursuit of eternity with their love. A conquistador in Mayan country searches for the tree of life to free his captive queen; a medical researcher, working with various trees, looks for a cure that will save his dying wife; a space traveler, traveling with an aged tree encapsulated within a bubble, moves toward a dying star that's wrapped in a nebula; he seeks eternity with his love. The stories intersect and parallel; the quests fail and succeed. —<jhailey@hotmail.com>
