The Sweet Hereafter

A never-ending ache.

After a school bus accident claims the lives of 14 children, a small Canadian town finds itself trapped in a cycle of pain.

Ian Holm plays a lawyer — with issues of his own — who seems to offer a ray of hope, spearheading a class-action lawsuit, but there are few happy answers for anyone.

The accident, and the court case, lay bare other problems festering just beneath the surface of the town.

If you’re hoping for a tidy end, this isn’t the movie.
