Defending Your Life

Defending Your Life

Directed by Albert Brooks

Albert Brooks wrote, directed and stars with Academy Award winner Meryl Streep in this delightfully offbeat romantic comedy that shows it's never too late to change your life--even if you're already dead. When advertising executive Daniel Miller (Brooks) dies suddenly in a car accident, he's transported to Judgment City and faces a tribunal to decide whether he will go to a better place or return to earth for another incarnation. It doesn't look good for Miller, but unexpectedly and for the first time in his life--or his past lives--Miller discovers love.
