The Sweet Hereafter


Dir: Atom Egoyan (Exotica; Felicia's Journey)

Not much to add apart from my previous review of this wonderful movie. This time, I paid particular attention to a rather subtle yet powerful exploration of the ethical status of tort law. It is easy to sweep that into the incredible interpersonal stories being told, but is worthy of examination in its own right.

So sensitive. Really one of my favorites of all time.
