The Sweet Hereafter

Dir. Atom Egoyan (1997). A school bus skids into an icy lake, leaving behind an emotional ghost town. Atom Egoyan's ethereal heart-wrencher—a disaster movie with neither heroes nor villains—is as restrained as it is devastating. Brilliantly constructed, The Sweet Hereafter travels effortlessly back and forth in time, creating a vortex of suspense and dread—first circling around the catastrophe, then charting the way it resonates through the communal psyche. Author Russell Banks will take questions after the screening.
Fri., Sept. 10, 7:30 p.m., 2010
