Hereafter

Hereafter

Director: Clint Eastwood

Writer: Peter Morgan

Stars: Matt Damon, Cécile De France

Reviewed by: Scotty

This movie has received mixed reviews, some think it is great and some find it boring.  I found this movie to be pretty boring.  The people who think it is great believe that the movie was lacking in emotion and direction purposely, to speak to the larger point. Life is precious and death is mysterious.  I knew that going into the film.

Hereafter is the story of 3 people, miles away but sharing something sacred.  George(Matt Damon) is an honest psychic that hates the gift (curse) that he has.  George can speak with people who have just died and he tries to avoid using this ability but is talked into it by his brother to use his gift again.  Marie Lelay (Cécile de France) is a journalist on assignment in Thailand that is involved in a terrible Tsunami that takes many lives but she is pulled from the water and resuscitated but not until she has a near death experience.  Marcus(Frankie and George McClaren) is the son of an addict and the twin brother of Jason that was hit by a van and killed.

Blah blah blah blah blah..   George meets Marie at a book signing and through touching her hands he sees her experience from the Tsunami. George then meets Marcus and connects Marcus to Jason who sends him a message from beyond.  George is then told where Marie is staying; they meet up and walk off hand to hand to end the movie.

This movie lacked direction and if I had not drunk 3 cups of coffee I would have fallen asleep.  I give it 1 guy, barely.
