Nominees and Awards
Based on the book by Russell BANKS, The Sweet Hereafter recounts the fictional events leading up to and following a school bus accident that kills 14 children in a small town in the British Columbia interior. The story follows the families whose lives irrevocably change and a big-city lawyer, Mitchell Stephens, who hopes to sign them up for a class-action lawsuit. In the ensuing atmosphere of suspicion, guilt and doubt, a surviving teenager named Nicole, who has lost the use of her legs in the accident, regains her strength and dignity and, by telling a lie, reunites the community.
