The Sweet Hereafter

New Line; rental pricing
Feature; R
Director:Atom Egoyan
Cast:Ian Holm, Sarah Polley and Caerthan Banks

Hands down, the best movie of 1997. This adaptation of Russell Banks's haunting novel about the aftermath of a school-bus accident brims with unforgettable performances, especially Holm as a tormented, ambulance-chasing lawyer and Polley as an ephemeral teen. Sorely overlooked at Oscar time, it's a little film that masterfully asks big questions, about God, fate, revenge and the seeming inevitability of tragedy.
