Love story weaving together three interrelated tales set in the past, present and far future, with the couples in each ably played by Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz: a medical researcher racing to find a cure to save his terminally ill wife; the characters in a novel she's writing about a 16th-century conquistador questing after the fabled Fountain of Youth for his lover, the queen of Spain; and the same scientist, who hasn't aged a bit, traveling to a distant star in the 26th century, still searching for the secret of eternal life. Written and directed by Darren Aronofsky, the script is by turns poignant and confusing but the visuals are striking and the film's unifying themes of love and mortality provide for some thoughtful reflection on the way death helps delineate our humanity and give our lives meaning. Some violence, a suggested marital sexual encounter, a bloody scene of self-mortification, brief torture images and an instance of rough language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
