Hereafter by Clint Eastwood, 2010 (PG-13)

with Matt Damon (Invictus, Margaret, True Grit, We Brought a Zoo, The Informant!), Cécile De France (L'auberge Espagnole), Frankie McLaren, George McLaren, Bryce Dallas Howard (50/50, The Help), Jay Mohr, Marthe Keller, Thierry Neuvic, Mylène Jampanoï
From the director of Invictus, J. Edgar, Million Dollar Baby...

Clint Eastwood directs this supernatural thriller about three very different people and their responses to death, including a hesitant American psychic named George (Matt Damon) who may be able to help the others find answers and peace. Marie (Cécile De France) is a French journalist caught up in the aftereffects of the devastating 2004 tsunami, while in London, young Marcus (Frankie and George McLaren) seeks to contact his deceased twin brother.

It is said people who experienced death and came back to life experienced something similar. I don't know that this is the afterlife or just something in between, or something else. But definitely, it is fascinating. And the parallel stories of this movie makes you long for something unique, and it is pretty well built. You want them to meet to see the "something special" happen. It does happen, but I think the climax happen too much towards the end, with no continuation and a cheesy happy ending that made me upset. Too bad for a movie that was so enjoyable until the last five minutes.
