What Dreams May Come (1998)

Director: Vincent Ward

Writers: Ronald Bass, based on a novel by Richard Matheson

Stars: Robin Williams, Annabella Sciorra, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Max von Sydow, Jessica Brooks Grant

Years after the death of his two children, a man (Robin Williams) dies and goes to Heaven.

 Bereft in her solitude, his wife (Annabella Sciorra) commits suicide and goes to Hell. 

The loving husband risks all to rescue his soulmate from eternal damnation.


Director Vincent Ward's film marries visual spectacle to intense personal drama in a manner rarely equaled in film.


The afterlife in this film is mutable and responsive to the thoughts and dreams of its inhabitants, providing many opportunities for magnificent images, and the crew is up to the challenge. 

Williams, Sciorra, and the rest of the talented cast provide the emotional core.
