Director Clint Eastwood gives us his most spiritual film to date with Hereafter, the story of how death affects a blue collar worker (Matt Damon), a lonely London youth (played by twins George and Frankie McLaren), and a French TV journalist (Cecile de France). Written by acclaimed scribe Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), Hereafter features a gripping tsunami sequence during its opening minutes, but it later evolves into a deep character study of three people dealing with their own emotional crisis. “Most religions seem to ponder the afterlife but I thought this was interesting because it wasn’t really a religious project, it had a spirituality about it but it was not necessarily tied in any particular, organized thought,” said Eastwood at a recent press conference promoting Hereafter. “I think everybody whether you believe in the afterlife or (not)…I think certainly everyone has thought about it at some point in time and it’s a fantasy that…if there is something out there like that it would be just terrific. But that remains to be seen.” Hereafter, which also stars Jay Mohr and Richard Kind, opens in limited release today.
