Storyline

Patrick Messina, a once powerful patent lawyer marginalized by a life threatening disease is pushed out of his firm. At a meeting with his last client he encounters a doctor from a rural Sicilian village who has discovered a medicinal "cure all" made from the leaves of a centuries old Olive tree. Patrick's journey to identify the source of the tree's healing power uncovers a secret from ancient scripture that brings the past, present and future struggle with belief and faith for all that come into contact with what may be a modern miracle. Written by David J. Healey Executive Producer

A must see independent movie with an intriguing story and brilliant cast
15 October 2015 | by luaghingagainSee all my reviews

Leaves of the Tree is a must-see movie. The enticing story touches on themes of spirituality, love, and redemption. The movie is largely character-driven, with each brought to life by the members of the superstar cast who live up to their reputations. The pacing of the movie is perfect, making the audience feel the transformation of the characters--and the world around them--as the story progresses.

The cinematography is reason alone to see this film. Beautiful shots of Sicily bring the setting of the film to life in a way that few independent films can. From rolling hills to beautiful ocean, it seems like a perfect setting for a movie with a deeply spiritual theme.

I highly recommend this film.
