A drama centered on three people who are haunted by mortality in different ways. George Lonegan (Matt Damon) is a blue-collar American who has a special connection to the afterlife. On the other side of the world, French journalist, Marie Lelay (Cécile de France) has a near-death experience which shakes her reality, and when London schoolboy Marcus (identical twins Frankie McLaren and George McLaren) loses the person closest to him, he desperately needs answers. Each looking to understand the one thing all life has in common, but can never share, their lives will cross, changed by what they believe might, or must, exist in the hereafter.Written by

When the Mercedes van hits Jason, a shot from inside the car shows Jason's body thrown forward, cracking the windshield. *** The view is not from inside the Mercedes van, however. This can be clearly seen as the camera pans away from the twins, and the black car next to them has a cracked windshield. *** See more »
Did you do the reading?
Look, you still don't get it, do you? You think just 'cause I can make money doing this... just because I can, that I should do it.
Yeah, yeah I do. I also think you have a duty to do it, because you have a gift.
It's not a gift, Billy, it's a curse.

The mid 80s-late 90s Warner Bros. shield is used (in black and white) at the beginning of the movie and at the end of the credits. The same Warner Bros. Shield is used alongside the Amblin logo, also in black-and-white. See more »
Hereafter (2010) My Review i didn't know if I would be able to review this movie, the film is not about solid moments that one can simply talk about occurring in a film, but rather the experiences that forge who we are, and where those pieces as people feel they are searching but not finding someone to understand their differences, and those two pieces coming together finally between two extraordinary people crafted by extreme circumstance. It's impossible to describe, but also impossible not to feel, and so this movie is more about a feeling, a longing within us all to find meaning, to be validated perhaps, for who we are, not for what we do.
Three people in different parts of the world deal with death in their own way... a boy loses his brother, a woman nearly drowns, and a man burdened by his psychic ability he calls more curse than gift... we follow these burned characters as they stumble with what they understand, and what they cannot deny...
The movie will slip by many, those only looking for the mundane, action-packed, roller-coaster ride, but for those looking for a visceral, meaningful, timeless gem, look no further, for you will find it here.
