Academy Award winners Robin Williams and Cuba Gooding Jr., embark on a supernatural journey beyond the realm of mortality in this visually stunning and unforgettable epic. Deceased Chris Nielsen (Williams) begins to adapt to his new state of being in a setting that can only be described as heavenly. When his distraught wife, Annie (Annabella Sciorra) takes her own life, she is banished to eternal damnation. Chris vows to find her so they can share eternity together. With the help of his heavenly friends, Chris sets out on the most perilous and harrowing journey of his life, or afterlife: a quest for everlasting love that will take him to hell and back!
Stunning to look at but let down by a dull story.

What Dreams May Come is a gorgeous looking film, the images of Heaven and Hell are incredibly detailed, highly imaginative, and beautifully realised. Unfortunately, what lets this film down is a story that's excruciatingly dull, depressing, and shamefully manipulative in trying to create emotion, rather than actually generating any genuine emotion. Despite a poor script Robin Williams and Annabella Sciorra give strong performances, and if you can get past the dull dialogue and saccharine sweet plot then 'What Dreams May Come' is worth renting just for the special effects.
