Heaven In Cinema
The new Clint Eastwood film, "Hereafter," is far from the only movie that takes the afterlife as its central theme. Today we'll talk with our film contributor, Garen Daly, about how heaven has been portrayed in cinema from a place of enlightenment, to a birds eye view of life, to a place of comedic reincarnation. We'll discuss Between Two Worlds (1944), It's A Wonderful Life (1946), Stairway To Heaven (1946), Heaven Can Wait (1978), Defending Your Life (1991), The Lovely Bones (2009), and of course, Hereafter (2010).
