This is the story of three gentle persons: Paul Rivers, an ailing mathematician lovelessly married to an English émigré; Christina Peck, an upper-middle-class suburban housewife, happily married and mother of two little girl; and Jack Jordan, an ex-convict who has found in his Christian faith the strength to raise a family. They will be brought together by a terrible accident that will change their lives. By the final frame, none of them will be the same as they will learn harsh truths about love, faith, courage, desire and guilt, and how chance can change our worlds irretrievably—forever.
Directed by: Alejandro González Iñárritu
21 grams the movie was such a beautifully constructed story. It had the rawest of emotions that are intense. Some may find the content a bit heavy but I thought it was pure craft. The way the story unfolds into each other is fabulous. It’s a film about the basics of human nature. 21 grams is the weight of your soul apparently once it leaves your body when you die.
