Clint Eastwood-directed supernatural thriller is one of those intertwining storylines pics, this time with three people affected by death in different ways — Matt Damon is a factory worker and psychic, Cecile de France is a French television journalist, a young Frankie McLaren as an English boy — and how their destinies converge.
Why It's a Contender:
Critics got their first look at Hereafter
at the Toronto Film Festival a few days ago, and in spite of a review embargo, a few tweets leaked out indicating it kind of sucked. But don't count this pic out quite yet. It's got heavily pedigreed players (Eastwood, Damon) and deals with heavy topics like death and the afterlife.
