Spanning over one thousand years, and three parallel stories, the Fountain is a story of love, death, spirituality, and the fragility of our existence in this world. It is a love story, but it is also a journey into a man's deep seated belief that death is a disease and his quest to protect the one he loves from it. The Fountain will have you once again believing that romance and love between two people for all eternity is possible and that as long as the human spirit remains strong, anything is possible - even immortality.

Introducing The TribeJanuary 31, 2011
I'm excited to invite you to the new part of the Masculinity Movies website - The Masculinity Movies Tribe.
Why would you want to join The Tribe? I don't know what is true for you, but what is true for me is that my life has seen dramatic improvements as the depth and intensity in my relating with close male friends (Brothers) has increased.
And now I crave that sort of depth in all areas of my life. Truth-telling is my new hobby. Once I went there, it's so uninspiring to turn back to trivial and mundane conversations (not that I mind superficial conversation, it's just that I want that edge BAD).
So I'm excited to invite you to join the growing Tribe, to practice honing that edge and to see if my experience will also be yours. It will take some time to build the energy, but in the end I think it will kick serious ass. Welcome!

This is a marvellous movie about King George VI's speech impediment and the friendship which helped him overcome it. It tells us many important lessons about the clearing of past trauma, of the willingness to defy conventions in service of the greater good and the journey a man must travel to fulfill his destiny – to inspire the weary hearts of a people at war.
