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-wrenchera disaster movie with neither heroes nor villainsis as restrained as it is devastating. Brilliantly constructed, The Sweet Hereafter travels effortlessly back and forth in time, creating a vortex of suspense and dreadfirst circling around the catastrophe, then charting the way it resonates through the communal psyche. Author Russell Banks will take questions after the screening.
