CHARLIE ST. CLOUD (2010 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Charlie St. Cloud—based on Ben Sherwood’s novel, The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud—becomes one of Zak Efron’s best works. A fresh and novel approach to the subject of life after death, the film shows love's embracing beyond death so that life extends into a surreal interaction between two brothers. A good movie, well written and well acted.

Storyline

Charlie St. Cloud’s (Zac Efron) younger brother, Sam (Charlie Tahan), dies after a car accident. Charlie had promised to play baseball with Sam every day before Sam died and keeps that promise.
