Movie Info

A character drama from South Africa set in the apartheid era, After the Rain focuses on Steph (Paul Bettany), an Afrikaner soldier with more than his share of emotional problems. His girlfriend (Louise Lombard) is close friends with Joseph (Ariyon Bakare), and when Steph returns home one day to find the two in bed together, he immediately thinks the worst (even though their relationship is entirely platonic). Steph ties the two up, and forces them to listen to his hateful invective for the rest of the evening. After the Rain was written and directed by Ross Kettle, whose screenplay was adapted from his own play, +Soweto's Burning.

Audience Reviews for After the Rain

Well..roughly made movie from Africa?? Paul Bettany was the only reason why I watched this. The first half of the movie was unimpressive, but the last half completely made up for that. Of course, Paul was in the entire last half...that alone made the movie for me. The storyline is excellent, and the acting superb. They truly captured the pain of living in South Africa, and the toil it took on their emotional well-being.

Poignant film, really well acted and very much liked the sincere performances. Good story, nicely directed. God cinematography. What makes the film work is the character development, Very well done.
