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

The outside scenes of the London Underground feature Liverpool St Station which is at the eastern edge of the City of London, with the signage digitally altered to make it appear to be Charing Cross. Charing Cross actually has only one above-ground entrance to the tube network, on Trafalgar Square just across from Nelson's Column. 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 »

Afterlife, near-death experiences Like everyone else, I thought people saw bright lights, Eden-like gardens and so forth because they were culturally conditioned to do so.

Excellent film exploring deep emotions and near-death experience
29 October 2010 | by mtroum-2See all my reviews

An emotional film (bring some hankies) exploring the love of children for their mother, the loss of a loved one, and the near-death experiences of the two main characters. The acting is superb, particularly the young McLaren brothers and Cecile DeFrance. I applaud Clint Eastwood for taking this risk and creating a solid piece with riveting emotions and a fantastic conclusion. The only leap of faith that must be taken is the belief that George (Matt Damon) truly has this gift/curse since it is the thread that weaves through all his relationships. This is truly an enjoyable movie and adds to my belief that the greatness of a film is not in the critic's eyes but in your own. This is the second sleeper movie of the week for me. The first one was RED...a great, entertaining movie.
