Afterlife Of The Party: Viewers 'Sobbing Their Eyes Out' Watching Netflix Film

Netflix knows how to pull at our heartstrings, and their new comedy-drama film Afterlife of the Party is no exception.

Victoria Justice stars as Cassie, a 24-year-old social butterfly who dies after celebrating her birthday with her childhood best friend and roommate Lisa (Midori Francis).

Before smashing her head on the bathroom toilet seat after waking up with the worst hangover, the lifelong pals got into a massive squabble after Lisa accused Cassie of putting her social life before their friendship.

Cassie also has a strained relationship with dad, Howie (Adam Garcia), and a non-existent one with her mum, Sofia (Gloria Garcia), who walked out on their family when Cassie was young.

She wakes up in the office of an angel handler named Val (Robyn Scott) who explains that Cassie has been dead for almost a year and before reaching the "afterlife party in heaven" she has five days to make amends with a list of people on earth as a guardian angel.

The list includes her best friend Lisa, her father and her mother Sofia. However, Cassie has to try figure out the best way to help each of them to make it to heaven before time runs out and she's sent to hell, 'the below'.

Viewers have been left "sobbing" after watching Cassie 'visit' her loved ones on earth after her death.

"I did not expect Afterlife of the Party to make me cry, but omg I was sobbing near the end," one viewer tweeted.
