“The Fountain” is an odyssey
about one man’s eternal struggle to save the woman he loves.
His epic journey begins in 16th-century Spain, where
conquistador Tomas (HUGH JACKMAN) commences his search for
the Fountain of Youth, the legendary entity believed to
grant immortality. 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 that have consumed him for a
millennium. The three stories converge into one truth, as
the Thomas of all periods—warrior, scientist, and
explorer—comes to terms with life, love, death and rebirth.
