This is the story of three well-meaning but flawed people: Paul Rivers, an ailing mathematician lovelessly married to an English émigré, Christina Peck, an upper-middle-class suburban housewife, happily married and mother of two little girls, and Jack Jordan, an ex-convict who has found in his Christian faith the strength to raise a family. They will be brought together by a terrible accident that will change their lives. By the final frame, none of them will be the same as they will learn harsh truths about love, faith, courage, desire and guilt, and how chance can change our worlds irretrievably, forever. Written by

On one occasion when in Church, there is a close view of Jack, standing for a hymn. The audio is congregational singing. Jack is not singing, but the black guy to his right is singing enthusiastically, but not anything like what the rest of the church is singing, See more »

An intelligent, sensitive and human portray of fatality
Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, becomes with " 21Grams" a master craftsman
that can push psychological boundaries and proves that to understand
the Americans, you don't have to be one. And very often foreign
directors that tackle American psyche do so in an intelligent and often
very accurate and sensible way. Even though this film could have had
characters from any country. Of course this is the case with the
director of this brilliant film. I had to see it twice under very
different circumstances and both times i left with a profound
satisfaction of watching a great film. The work of Sean Penn, Benicio
Del Toro , Naomi Watts and Charlotte Gainsbourg is superb. Overall for
me, the best film of 2003
