In God We Trust

USA, 1999 (MIFF 2000, Fiction)

Director: Jason Reitman

Take a 16 minute thrill ride as the 'dead' Robert arrives to be assessed in purgatory. Prognosis: Hell! Our hero takes fate into his own hands, taking the elevator back to earth to rectify his past imperfect; the 'God Squad' is in hot 'virtual' pursuit. But sometimes even divine intervention isn't enough. In God We Trust zips along at a cracking pace.
