Clint Eastwood's yen for tackling a variety of genres as a director extends to the supernatural with this well-acted drama, reuniting him with "Invictus" co-star Matt Damon as one of several people with strong connections to the afterlife.
Cecile De France and young Frankie McLaren play the others, and they eventually meet up with Damon's character, who finds his special ability more a curse than a blessing. Eastwood stages a whopper of a tsunami sequence to set the story in motion. DVD extras: three "making-of" documentaries. *** (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
