The Fountain is an odyssey about one man's thousand-year struggle to save the woman he loves. His epic journey begins in 16th century Spain, where conquistador Tomas Creo (Hugh Jackman) commences his search for the Tree of Life, the legendary entity believed to grant eternal life to those who drink of its sap.

As modern-day scientist Tommy Creo, he desperately struggles to find a cure for the cancer that is killing his beloved wife Isabel (Rachel Weisz). Traveling through deep space as a 26th-century astronaut, Tom begins to grasp the mysteries of life that have consumed him for more than a century.

  • 1 star "Pretentious piece of artsy fartsy junk. I felt sorry for the actors - Jackson especially looked like a chump in this. Should have been advertised as an art film instead os hoodwinkingthe general public into paying for a ticket to be entertained. Want my money back for the loss of two hours of my life."
