I had some interest in seeing Clint Eastwood
, but after hearing the phenomenal Jenifer Lewis
has a role -- I am sold! The veteran of stage and screen is known for her comedic roles but to see her in a dramatic role is cinematic gold. The best scene in Not Easily Broken
was Lewis' breakdown. She was also a force in Strong Medicine
. So I can't wait to see Ms. Lewis in Hereafter
, which stars Matt Damon
. Here is the synopsis.
HEREAFTER tells three parallel stories about three people affected by death in different ways. Oscar® winner 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 a London schoolboy (Frankie McLaren) 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. Candace (Jenifer Lewis) is Matt Damon's neighbor, a woman who will do anything and give everything to make a connection with her loved one.
