HEREAFTER– A Film Well Done

Last night I saw the  new film Hereafter, directed by Clint Eastwood.  Matt Damon and Cecile de France were excellent as were the supporting actors.  The screenplay was by Peter Morgan.

I thought it was a  fair and well balanced approach to the subject matter of the near-death experience, mediumship and the notion of an afterlife.

It was actually brought together the experiences of three different characters and tied them nicely together at the end.

Damon's character was the most interesting to me because it revealed a deeply conflicted and reluctant psychic/medium.  His words echoed those of others who I've met–it is a curse not a blessing.

Eastwood, whatever his personal beliefs, treats the subject matter with the respect it deserves.  He leaves the audience curious about the metaphysical nature of reality.

That in itself deserves kudos.
