A deceptively simple drama about a family and its thousand-year-old olive tree that is rooted in the best cinematic soil there is — emotional truth — The Olive Tree gets its hooks in early on, and then never lets up. Combining social criticism with a deeply human story about the broken and unbroken bonds between generations, this story about a young Spanish woman’s quest to recover a symbolically significant olive tree from its new corporate owners is, cinema that cares about making the world a better place. This hugely popular film is a must-see.
