How We Determine Our Grades

Matt Damon may be best known for his role as CIA operative Jason Bourne in The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum. He previously worked with Director Clint Eastwood and was nominated for an Oscar for his role as the captain of the South African national rugby team in Invictus. The examination of near death experiences appears to be a departure from his regular subjects for this movie’s writer Peter Morgan, whose previous films include among others The Queen, The Other Boleyn Girl, The Damned United and Frost/Nixon.

Loss and grief also affect the characters in the movies Dragonfly, Charlie St. Cloud and Bright Star.
