Oscar® winner Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting, Invictus) reunites with Academy Award® winner Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby, Unforgiven) for this supernatural thriller from a screenplay by two time Oscar® nominee Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen). Acclaimed director Eastwood's first foray into the supernatural tells the story of three people who are haunted by mortality in different ways. Matt Damon stars as George, a blue-collar American who has a special connection to the afterlife. On the other side of the world, Marie (Cécile de France), a French journalist, has a near-death experience that shakes her reality. And when Marcus (Frankie/George McLaren), a London schoolboy, loses the person closest to him, he desperately needs answers. Each on a path in search of the truth, their lives will intersect, forever changed by what they believe might -- or must -- exist in the hereafter.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Despite a thought-provoking premise and Clint Eastwood's typical flair as director, Hereafter fails to generate much compelling drama, straddling the line between poignant sentimentality and hokey tedium.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this Clint Eastwood-directed drama (which stars Matt Damon) deals with the weighty subjects of death and the afterlife and may prove too intense for tweens and younger teens. At moments -- especially when examining how death affects those left behind -- it’s steeped in melancholy; one child even loses his twin brother. The first 10 minutes (which recreate 2004's horrific tsunami) are realistically terrifying; there are also other upsetting sequences involving a car accident, some swearing (including "f--k"), and a character who's addicted to drugs. Still, the movie tackles its tough subjects with empathy and raises significant questions about faith and grief.
