Goofs

When George Harvey is looking at the scrapbook he has on Lindsey Salmon the first article refers to Lindsey receiving a soccer award on Saturday the 9th of May. The 9th of May occurred on a Saturday in 1970 and 1981 which is incorrect in the context of the film. Furthermore, if one closely examines each of the supposedly different articles they each contain the same exactly phrased paragraphs though in different arrangements, sometimes very incongruously (such as an article about her sister's soccer award containing exactly the same paragraph about a helicopter search for her missing sister as in a previous unrelated article).

Quotes

[first lines]
Susie Salmon: [voiceover] I remember being really small; too small to see over the edge of a table. There was a snow globe, and I remember the penguin who lived inside the globe. He was all alone in there, and I worried for him.

Pearls Before Swine
26 July 2011 | by empty1969See all my reviews

This movie shouldn't be my cup of tea. I'm pretty cynical and my favourite film genres are sci-fi and horror in that order. However, this film blew me away.

I don't understand all of the negative reviews concentrating on the CGI. It's supposed to be depicting an other-worldly realm between earth and heaven - what do you expect / want to see if you go to Heaven, grim city streets with alleys full of garbage and low-lifes? I found the imagery to be exactly what I would hope from heaven - endless possibilities bounded only by imagination - and it delivered that feeling.

As for the plot and the acting, I thought it was first-rate from start to finish.

If you still have a soul in this cynical world then I'm sure you'll like it - don't listen to the miserable horde.
