It's a wonderful afterlife

"I think I know what my unfinished business is."

Elizabeth Masterson

Just Like Heaven

Release Date: September 16, 2005

From director Mark Waters comes the new romantic comedy Just Like Heaven, starring Reese Witherspoon (A Far Off Place) and Mark Ruffalo (Collateral).

When David (Ruffalo) rented his quaint San Francisco apartment, the last thing he expected—or wanted—was a roommate. He had only begun to make a complete mess of the place when a pretty but decidedly controlling young woman named Elizabeth (Witherspoon) suddenly shows up, adamantly insisting the apartment is hers. David assumes there's been a giant misunderstanding...until Elizabeth disappears as mysteriously as she appeared. Changing the locks does nothing to deter Elizabeth, who begins to appear and disappear at will—mostly to rebuke David for his personal living habits in her apartment.

Convinced Elizabeth is a ghost, David tries to help her cross over to the "other side." But while Elizabeth has discovered she does have a distinctly ethereal quality—she can walk through walls—she is equally convinced that she is somehow still alive and isn't crossing over anywhere. As Elizabeth and David search for the truth about who Elizabeth is and how she came to be in her present state, their relationship deepens into love. Unfortunately, they have very little time before their prospects for a future together permanently fade away.

Just Like Heaven was produced by Laurie MacDonald (The Ring) and Walter F. Parkes (Gladiator), with David Householter (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy) executive producing. Mark Waters directed the film from a screenplay by Peter Tolan and Leslie Dixon, based upon the novel If Only It Were True by Marc Levy, who also served as co-producer.

The main cast also includes Donal Logue (ER), Dina Waters, Ben Shenkman and Jon Heder.
