Austin, Texas

As seen in: The Tree of Life (2011)

Some of the most striking scenes in Terrence Malick’s high-minded film, about a 1950s family and the origin of life, take place in Texas swimming holes like Hamilton Pool, 30 miles southwest of Austin. Formed millennia ago when erosion revealed an underground river, the lagoon and surrounding preserve attract swimmers, hikers and picnickers. In the city's Zilker Park, the three O’Brien brothers (actors Hunter McCracken, Laramie Eppler and Tye Sheridan) play in the man-made Barton Springs Pool.
