Clint Eastwood’s HEREAFTER, Starring Matt Damon, to Close out 2010 New York Film Festival

     August 16, 2010


We previously reported that David Fincher’s The Social Network would open this year’s New York Film Festival.  Today, the Festival has announced that Clint Eastwood’s Hereafter will be the closing night film.  The movie [via The Playlist]:

“Follows three plotlines: Matt Damon plays a psychic in San Francisco who can’t connect emotionally with his girlfriend (Bryce Dallas Howard) and wants nothing to do with his powers; Cecile DeFrance plays a French TV journalist/talk show host who has a near death experience in the 2004 Tsunami and the third character is a young boy whose twin brother dies in an accident (played by unknowns Frankie and George McClaren). Slowly as the script evolves, their lives interconnect.”

As we reported last week, Eastwood describes the film as his first “chick flick” but one that won’t make men “want to stick a Swiss Army knife in their leg.” Hit the jump to see the full line-up for the festival, which runs from from September 24 – October 10.  Hereafter opens nationwide on October 22nd.
