The plot fits in pretty well with all of the books about life after death, beginning with Raymond Moody's Life After Life and, even before that, Seth Speaks, and running right through to the excellent books by Michael Newton. The premise is that after we die we leave our bodies and continue to exist. Don't expect too close an agreement with those books, though. This is, after all, just a story. There is no claim to accuracy.
There is a plane crash. It appears that both young men in the plane survived the crash, but then we see scenes indicating that one of the men died. Sarah Jessica Parker's character is the only person who sees him, apparently as a ghost. And she falls in love with him.
Why hasn't he gone on to Heaven, or wherever the dead are supposed to go? Is he there to help split up the budding romance between Sarah's mom and her cop boyfriend? Might he be there just to calm Sarah down about the upcoming marriage her mom is contemplating? Sarah is deeply hurt by the possibility that her mom may forget Sarah's deceased father and marry another man.
There is a surprise ending. I won't ruin it for you, but all I will say is that before you reach the last few minutes of the film, you don't know everything, or as Yogi said, It ain't over til it's over.
It's really a heartwarming story. I disagree with the other reviewer on this site, who described this film as a bit of fluff. It is more than that. I also notice that the other reviewer gave it the same five star rating that I did, so perhaps he sees it as more than just a bit of fluff. It's a beautiful story.
How close is it to reality? We'll just have to wait and see, won't we.
In "Somewhere Tomorrow" she played the vulnerable Lori whose loss of her father in a plane crash has deeply affected her.
While her mother appears to be picking up the pieces of her life, dating the local Sheriff, Lori is struggling to come to terms with the changes going on around her in which she feels she has no control.
And the biggest change for Lori is the selling of the family horse farm and her mother's decision to marry again.
However despite all these many trials and tribulations Lori is about to fall in love herself but the only problem is, is that Terry the boy of her dreams, played by Tom Shea is a ghost!
His death in a plane accident has left him "trapped" on earth and the only person who can see him is Lori!
We are treated to a delightful series of escapades as Lori and Terry try to work out what is going on and during this time love blossoms between the teenagers.
This is a tender, gentle story about loss, love, forgiveness and moving on with ones life.
Sarah Jessica Parker is wonderful as the fragile teenager Lori and Tom Shea is delightful as her ghostly boyfriend Terry.
Look out for Sarah Jessica Parker singing part in the film, she has a really good voice and the song is lovely!
Well worth a bucket of popcorn and a box of Kleenex!
Sarah Jessica Parker's first starring role. Romance weaves with the supernatural in this sensitive tale of a fate with circumstance. Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex in the City) plays a young girl, mourning over the loss of her father. Nothing it seems can break her sorrow. Fate intervenes one day in the form of a small plane crash that takes the life of a young man, who rather than ascending to the great beyond, finds himself still on earth and the object of Sarah Jessica Parker's affections. Together they must find out why he remains earthbound and unravel the mystery. Will answers be found ? Can love survive beyond death ? You will be touched by the answers as this compelling drama unfolds.
I'd guess the film is/was made for TV. Also look for Elizabeth Shue, in her film debut. A interesting note is Sarah Jessica Parker performs two onscreen songs in the film. (Not too shabby I might add.) One with her male co-star playing guitar and a solo accompanied by a piano. Basically, the movie is cutesie fluff, but very heartwarming and keeps you captivated as to what will occur. Could be very helpful for depressed children dealing with a family death.
2005 DIGIVIEW DVD
STANDARD FULL FRAME
COMPATABLE WITH ALL DVD PLAYERS / REGION FREE.
The DVD release for SOMEWHERE TOMORROW is very interesting because several DVD companies notably Digiview/Legacy (US/Canada)-Walmart (US)/ MRA (Australia Region 4)/Boulevard Entertainment-Woman's Own (UK Region 2) and finally AN OFFICIAL RELEASE BY THE COMPANY THAT CO-PRODUCED THIS FILM MEDIA-BLASTERS. I have every copy and studied the quality of the DVD transfer. Digiview, Walmart, Legacy and MRA are very grainy and choppy in places (Poor transfers). The Boulevard Entertainment (UK) and Media-Blasters (US) are perfect DVD picture (clarity/sharpness/no bleeding colours) quality and are clearly direct film transfers. Interestingly Media-Blasters (US) originally released 'Somewhere Tomorrow' on Video in the 1980s.
This is an entertaining twist of a story, with delights of joy and sadness, blended with humour about dealing with death of a loved one, in this case Lori's father. Somewhere Tomorrow was made in 1983. Despite the low budget it's got a great storyline, though you may need to watch it twice to understand the twist towards the end. A charming and moving film.
Thankyou Media-blasters for finally releasing the rare gem of a film on DVD.
