Hereafter - Clint Eastwood

Really forgettable. I guess all brilliant directors have to make a few mistakes.

A journalist has a near death experiance, complete with the bright light et al, and tries to make sense of it. Meanwhile a psychic tries to lead a 'normal' life, and works to avoid using his unusual abilities. A third parallel story track, has a little kid trying to understand and come to terms, with his loss. At the end the three stories come together briefly.

Overall, it just seemed like a mish mash, and didn't come together well. The pace was uneven, and the story was rather incoherent.

I find it a fascinating topic, and was really expecting at least a more nuanced handling from someone like Clint Eastwood. But sadly disappointing.
