A lawyer visits the victims’ parents in order to profit from the tragedy by stirring up the their anger and launching a class action suit against anyone they can blame. The community is paralyzed by its anger and cannot let go. All but one young girl, left in a wheelchair after the accident, who finds the courage to lead the way toward healing.
Plot: A small mountain community in Canada is devastated when a school bus accident leaves more than a dozen of its children dead. A big-city lawyer arrives to help the survivors’ and victims’ families prepare a class-action suit, but his efforts only seem to push the townspeople further apart. At the same time, one teenage survivor of the accident has to reckon with the loss of innocence brought about by a different kind of damage.

The Uncertainty of Uncertainty…
… of not knowing what’s behind closed doors, that leads us to hope nothing other than normal is going on behind them – whatever normal is. In this case no optimism, which I don’t think is normal, there’s always optimism, there’s always a shade of hope, whether you choose to grab hold of it or not.
You could take a bus full of school children on any given day, in any part of the world, and observe the chaos that results after an appalling accident similar to the one presented here – but few outcomes would be the same after the despair, loss, rage and anger have subsided, and nobody would suggest it was fate. It is however, a beautifully performed picture, it leaves you reflective and thoughtful about the lives of the characters, how they became who they are and what they will become as a result. I don’t buy the loss as a metaphor for the loss of the nostalgic view of the childhood of yesteryear either – that metaphor should be a celebration of opportunity. I would not want to curse myself with the childhood of my parents or similarly do the same to my own children.
Interesting, but not as moving as I thought it would be.
Lately I’ve been seeing just about every movie that someone recommends to me, and “the Sweet Hereafter” has been on quite a few of my friends’ lists. I was excited about finally seeing the movie.
What I found was less compelling than I expected. None of the characters were really engaging, and perhaps that’s the aim of the film. But I honestly can’t understand how this movie could have made people cry. Who did they identify with? Ian Holm’s character, whose grimacing and silence set my teeth on edge, and whose attitude toward the families of the accident victims was so entirely self-serving? Sarah Polley’s character, who almost never displayed any spark of life? And even if I had begun to identify with one character or another, I would have been instantly put off by the trite lines that kept coming out of their mouths. “Let me direct your rage?” Give me a break.
Not to imply too much of a connection between the films, but if you want to feel the terror and rage surrounding a tragedy as though you were there living through it, see “Boys Don’t Cry.” The words that go unsaid in that film are worth much more than those voiced-over or spoken all too clearly in “the Sweet Hereafter.”
