"After" catalogs so many clichés in the dysfunctional family at its center that the film could be taught in a screenwriting class as a lesson in what not to do.
Kind of irritating in is purposeful disingenuousness and determined challenges to plausibility.
Viewers ... are left with little to do but endure a lot of seemingly unprovoked family tensions while waiting for the inevitable revelation.
[There's] a fairly far-fetched twist that feels out of place in this realism-based drama.
A frequently absorbing miserablist family drama shot in appropriately chilly winter tones ...
Gaspersz embeds you with this family's struggles, and almost makes you care about what happens to them all in the end
American tragedy serves as underfed underpinning for rote theatrics in After, an unpersuasive ensemble drama that settles into a self-serious glide-path of inanity early on, never to recover.
Family drama set in upstate New York and revolving around a devastating secret which ultimately rings as hollow as the film itself.
How often does a film come along that truly, deeply pisses you off?
Writer Sabrina Gennarino works hard to craft a layered drama, but the result -- at least under director Pieter Gaspersz -- is hammy schmaltz.
I've never had a movie try to guilt me into acceptance right before the credits rolled, but I guess there's a first time for everything?
Throughout After, the filmmakers crank the trials of the film's Valentino family up to 11, sans irony or subversion.
