This isn't about the afterlife. It's about being open to the unknown and the unseen during your lifetime. It's about the randomness that rules are lives. And it's about the element of predestination that each of us recognizes when certain people come into our lives– even if for a passing moment– or when certain events occur, that upon hindsight cause us to believe in the oft-quoted line, "There's a divinity that shapes our ends, rough hew them how we will".
There isn't a role that Matt Damon doesn't embody completely– be it a soccer captain or a psychic.
And what about that Clint Eastwood– going on 80, but making movies that make you think– and dare I say it, feel!
