21 GRAMS Feature Film (2003)
This movie is an oldy, but a goodie. Warning - its not for the light-hearted and it may contain content that is triggering to some, but if you're in the mood to watch some brilliant cinema depicting folks in grief...this is it.
Starring Benicio Del Toro, Sean Penn and Naomi Watts, the film is named after a scientist's research which recorded a loss of body weight of 21 grams after death - alleged to prove the existence of the immortal huma soul.
