"Stunning and totally original.  CBS-TV

Editor's Note
Four years after the tragic death of their children in a car accident, Dr. Chris Nielsen (Robin Williams) is estranged from his wife, Annie (Annabella Sciora), a painter who finds solace in deep and mystical expressionist landscapes. When flustered Annie calls him for support, he rushes out to help and is killed in a road accident. His ghost is greeted by an old mentor, Albert (Cuba Gooding Jr.), who leads him in Ghost-of-Christmas-Past-style to Annie's side. But when Chris realizes that his adherence to the corporeal world is torture to himself and the living Annie, he breaks free of his Earthly bonds and dives into the visual smorgasbord that is the afterlife. There he splashes though clouds and gobs of technicolor paint in breathtaking landscapes suggested to him by Annie's paintings. From there, to grandiose Romanesque cities of flying children, Chris and his old dog are met by a gorgeous stewardess, who reveals herself as a nearly forgotten face from his past. As Chris reconciles with his children in a world where imagination is his palette, in the real world Annie becomes sicker and sicker, and finally enters the afterlife herself. Due to the myriad rules of the Other Side, she is unable to join Chris or her children, and Chris begins a fight for his future with his soul mate.

Rolling Stone
"...Dazzling visuals..." 10/28/1998 p.80

Entertainment Weekly
"...WHAT DREAMS MAY COME may be the closest that American movies have come to the somber grandiloquence of Krysztof Kieslowski's BLUE..." 10/09/1998 pp.50-54

New York Times
"...One of the most elaborate metaphysical love stories ever tackled by Hollywood..." 10/07/1998 p.E10

Box Office
"...Williams plays the heartstrings like a maestro, as he did so well in such films as GOOD WILL HUNTING and THE FISHER KING..." 12/01/1998 p.49

New York Times 7 of 10
Working from a screenplay by Ron Bass, [Director Vincent] Ward has created a film that at its most visually evocative portrays its characters' lives and afterlives as a kind of hall of mirrors, in which the lines between dream and reality, memory and eternity are continually blurring as one gives way to another. At its most seductive, the film portrays heaven as a magical, hallucinatory extension of the physical world that has been left behind... - Stephen Holden
