Hugh Jackman is looking for the fountain of youth

One movie to look forward to this November should be 'The Fountain' starring Hugh Jackman. The story is 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.

Jackman says that 'The Fountain' is incredible:

"I saw it, and I thought, 'Oh, man, I'm so glad to be in that.' It's like nothing you've ever seen. I can guarantee you that, and I think that Darren Aronofsky (director) is the modern-day Kubrick. I think that he is simply an artist and probably a genius."
