The Sweet Hereafter (1997)

The Sweet HereafterFour and a Half Stars

Who’s in it

Ian Holm, Sarah Polley, and a bunch of other unknowns

What was good

The whole thing was good, suspense and drama, great acting, and just enough of a haunting event to keep you watching, morbidly curious to know what happens.

What sucked

It was a little slow at times. But it is a great story. There is just a lot of script and acting and not that much action.

Who should go see this

Everyone. It isn’t violent, there is very little language, and if you ever read the book, you may or may not like the movie. But this is a rare instance where I have done both, and think it was a great translation. Oh, and curious what this is about? It’s a small town where a bus full of children die in a horrible accident.
