From director Clint Eastwood and writer Peter Morgan (The Queen), their new collaboration Hereafter which in turn is produced by Steven Spielberg.
"Hereafter" tells the story of three people who are haunted by mortality in different ways. Matt Damon stars as George, 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 (Frankie/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.
I know the shots of the tsunami are CG but they are very eerie to watch even now. I recognized Cecile de France from Un Secret, the last French film I saw. Is this her first English-language film, I wonder? A very different film from Eastwood who at his age (70) is producing better and better material as he ages. Bring it on!
