Life changes people, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. Arthur Brennan is one who experiences changes both for the better and the worse. Arthur was once a young man who fell in love with a beautiful woman. He married this woman and they were happy for many years. Then as time went on certain events happened that pulled these two hearts adrift and before they knew it life was on hold. Unable to handle this direction that their lives took, Arthur heads to ‘The Sea of Trees’ located in Japan. The Sea of Trees is a beautiful place but one known for suicides of people from all over the world. They say many go there to die, some get lost and things are not what they seem. In this forest, he meets a stranger and together they fight for survival and understanding. This is a slower paced and deeper story than what we are used to seeing Matthew McConaughey play. However, if you find yourself caught up in the business of life, take a moment to learn from McConaughey’s character about what life is really about.
