Storyline

A drama centered on three people who are haunted by mortality in different ways. George (Matt Damon) is a blue-collar American who has a special connection to the afterlife. On the other side of the world, Marie (Cécile De France), a French journalist, has a near-death experience that shakes her reality. And when Marcus (identical twins Frankie McLaren and George McLaren), a London schoolboy, loses the person closest to him, he desperately needs answers. Each on a path in search of the truth, their lives will intersect, forever changed by what they believe might-or must-exist in the hereafter. Written by Warner Bros. Pictures

Trivia

One of the few films executive produced by Steven Spielberg that has neither an Amblin Entertainment or DreamWorks Pictures symbol in the "Hereafter" ads representing his involvement. (The Amblin logo does appear at the end of the film itself.) See more »

Goofs

Marie and Didier are eating at a Paris restaurant on the evening following the London attacks: 7 July 2005. It is pitch black outside. On that date in Paris, civil twilight ended at 10:38 pm (i.e. the sky turned truly black at that time). That late in the evening, diners at a Paris restaurant would not be mid-meal - restaurants close up around 10:30 or 11 pm at the very latest. See more »

Quotes

George Lonegan: I'm sorry, I'm losing him now. He's leaving. He wants to leave.
Marcus: No, Jase. Don't go. You can't.
[starts crying]
Marcus: Don't leave me. I don't wanna be here without you. Please, Jase, don't go. I miss you.
George Lonegan: Okay, he came back. He's here. He says if you're worried about being on your own, don't be. You're not. Because he is you and you are him. One cell. One person. Always.

I can't believe I was gonna miss it because of bad reviews!
3 September 2011 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

I'm amazed at the amount of attacks this wondrous picture has suffered so far. I don't know whether it's Clint Eastwood, Matt Damon, or an overstated publicity before its opening. Would it have received different reviews if it had been directed or starred by other people, I don't know! The movie is SUPREME! It's probably going to be the best movie I will have watched this year. I don't deny that at first I was so put off watching it—because of your reviews, of course, and because I originally thought it would grapple with bereavement and loss and all spooky depressing matters—but an initial 10 min proved I had been greatly mistaken, and misled. It's been time since I've followed such a delicate and lovely storyline. It reminds me of movies like Sleepless in Seattle, The Adjustment Bureau and Jet Lag. It's much better and sophisticated in romance, for that matter; the romantic element runs almost surreptitiously, without you noticing it, till it is consummated in the end. The multi-plot scenario is really authentic, despite some reservations I have toward the Irish twins story. Some may criticize by stating its slow pace, but in my opinion it couldn't have been brought out another way; this is drama, people, not an action or horror flick.

This is a very bright, profound and unusual work of art. I may have my takes on some points in the scenario, the attitude towards Christianity in particular (which was quite unexpected given the spiritual dimension of the movie—as if they were trying to re-found spirituality without religion!); but all in all, a fascinating picture.
