Genre master Clint Eastwood tries something different with the languid, introspective Hereafter--and succeeds (for the most part). All of the characters at the heart of Peter Morgan's screenplay, which has the feel of a European art film, have suffered a loss or survived an ordeal. They feel disconnected from those who can't relate, which is most everybody. George Lonegan (Matt Damon, Invictus), a Bay Area factory worker, developed psychic powers after a childhood illness but just wants to lead a normal life, despite his brother Billy's efforts to turn him into a John Edwards-like celebrity (Jay Mohr plays Billy). Marie LeLay (the versatile Cécile De France), a TV reporter, emerges unharmed from 2004's Indian Ocean earthquake, only to find her Parisian existence slipping away from her (the tsunami sequence that opens the film is frightfully convincing). And in London, soft-spoken 12-year-old Marcus (Frankie McLaren) loses his twin, Jason (George McLaren), only to end up in foster care. While George reaches out to a lovely, if insecure woman (the overly jittery Bryce Dallas Howard) he meets in a cooking class, Marie writes a book about her experience, and Marcus seeks spiritual guidance. In a Babel-like turn of events, all three find themselves in the United Kingdom, where they cross paths, but what sounds contrived plays out in a surprisingly believable fashion. Eastwood and Morgan (The Queen) don't presume to know what happens after death, suggesting instead that those who search for answers deserve something other than disrespect and derision. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

What an amazing film, so different from what I expected. Matt Damon shows he really can act 'normal' roles - if you call this a normal role that is. The film itself is well written and perfectly directed by Clint Eastwood, who incidentally wrote the piano theme that runs through the film.

At first you cannot really see where the connection with the three stories will happen, then about half way through it begins to make more sense. I won't give anything away as the story needs to be seen and felt. All I will say is that this is not a film to watch once and store away, it is a film to watch again and again.

Someone called it the film of the year, I feel I am beginning to agree as it knocks spots of anything else released at the time.

This is one of my favourite movies and, in my opinion, the best ever directed by Clint Eastwood. 'Hereafter' is superbly plotted with three quite distinct international story lines which eventually come together in London. The low key, evenly balanced quality of this film presents the prospect of an afterlife from both the viewpoint of believers and sceptics; the viewers are left to make their minds up about the matter. Oddly, to my mind, this movie is not so much about the paranormal but more about people and how they deal with the death of loved ones. It has a very moving ending. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is getting to be a habit, Clint! 3 Feb 2011
By Rob
Hereafter is a European art-house movie with Hollywood production values.
It's yet another Eastwood movie that ranks as the best American film of the
year because it engages both heart and mind with its tale of three individuals
in different parts of the world disconnected from life by a brush with death.

In Asia, famous French TV reporter Marie (a luminous Cecile deFrance) briefly
dies during a horrific natural disaster and has a vision of what she suspects
may be the afterlife. Back home she can't get the experience out of her mind
and her obsession threatens her high-flying career and friendships. In San
Francisco, lonely, middle-aged factory worker George (Matt Damon) can apparently
talk to the dead but his 'gift' makes it impossible for him to form relationships
with anybody. Finally, on a grim housing estate in South London, young twins
Marcus and Jason (George & Frankie McClaren) try to fend off social workers from
taking their druggie Mum (Lyndsey Marchal) away. But when tragedy strikes, Marcus
loses the brother he always depended on and that need drives him into the arms of
charlatans promising contact with the dead.

This is Eastwood's quietest film and one of his very best. The director has
always exhibited a fondness for emphasising character over plot but here he
goes further than ever before, luxuriating in the lives and surroundings of
these three very different people.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Delicate Drama 1 Nov 2013
By Hagrid's Umbrella VINE VOICE
Mr Eastwood continues his string of thoughtful, mature, intelligent well made films laced with theme's of mortality and legacy in fine, slight different, style here.

This tale follows three groups of unhappy people finding their way in the world. George (Matt Damon) has a psychic gift but is trying to put the trauma this opened up behind him by living discretely as a fork lift driver in New York. Marie is a successful French television journalist coming to terms with the aftermath of a traumatic event. Marcus and Jason are 12 year old twins living in London with an alcoholic mother.

Fairly disparate people but each group have a strong story and plenty of time is given for each to develop and allow our understand of them to increase. There's also the question of if and if so how they will come together in the film.

This isn't really a ghost story as I'd presumed but more a study of three unhappy people / groups finding their way in the world.

You need patiences with this film but as it opens up but it's well worth sticking with this domestic drama. I'm surprised this wasn't nominated for Oscars as it seems an excellent people drama they like and Matt Damon's performance was very good.

An intricate and fascinating film, directed with an interesting juxtaposition of culture - almost documentary in its composition. A tantalising insight into life following life...a comfort - more films like this please!
