Recently Robert Redford he intends to retire completely from in front of the camera, but before then he’s decided to go into the afterlife with The Discovery. It certainly sounds like it could be an interesting one.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘What would you do if there was proof of an afterlife? The answer to this question is rivetingly explored in The Discovery, where world-renowned physicist Doctor Thomas Harber (Robert Redford) is able to scientifically prove the existence of an afterlife—but with dire consequences. His estranged son, Will (Jason Segel), tries to confront the situation by returning to the New England–esque island where he grew up. He crosses paths with Isla (Rooney Mara), who’s returning to the island for mysterious reasons of her own. The tale unfolds over the ensuing days as the regret of past choices forces these lost characters to reflect on how they’ve gotten to where they are.’
The Discovery is one of the high-profile purchases Netflix has made in their attempt to bring big-name movies to the streaming platform, without going through a cinema release first. It’ll be available on the streaming platform from March 31, 2017.
