Hereafter [2010]

Genre: Drama, Fantasy


About:
A drama centered on three people -- a blue-collar American, a French journalist and a London school boy -- who are touched by death in different ways.


Well, movie is OK. The movie doesn't have much of a "point", other than how death is such an important part of all of our lives, even as it's also probably the most mysterious. Actually, nothing is really happening in the movie. 



Director: 

Clint Eastwood

Writer: 

Peter Morgan

Stars:

 Matt Damon (George Lonegan) , C├ęcile De France (Marie Lelay), Bryce Dallas Howard (Melanie), Frankie McLaren (Marcus / Jason), George McLaren (Marcus / Jason)
