"The Sweet Hereafter"
Directed by Atom Egoyan
Following a tragic
schoolbus accident, high-profile lawyer Mitchell Stephens (Ian Holm)
descends upon a small town, with promises of retribution and a
class-action lawsuit filed on behalf of the community. But as his
investigation into the quiet town begins, Stephens uncovers a tangled web
of lies, deceit and forbidden desires that mirrors his own troubled
personal life. Gradually, we learn that Stephens has his own agenda, and
that everyone has secrets to keep. Letterboxed.
