Description Technical Specs
Taking its name from the belief that the body becomes twenty-one grams lighter upon death, the English-language debut from the director of Amores Perros is a strong, emotional ride with impressive performances from Sean Penn, Benicio Del Toro and Naomi Watts and a unique non-linear structure. The compelling story of three lives intertwined and torn apart by tragedy unfolds when a violent car crash brings together a college prof (Penn), an ex-con (Del Toro) and a young mother with a shattered past (Watts), allowing complicated and conflicted emotions and pasts to come to light amidst the turmoil. "...defies filmmaking convention and leaves an indelible mark on the collective psyche" (Bill Muller, Arizona Republic).
