Movie Info

Set in the winter of 2002 in chilly upstate New York, AFTER tells the story of a middle class family struggling with the financial consequences of a failing family business and a series of intergenerational conflicts and rivalries. But, what truly threatens to upset their delicate balance-- and shatter the emotionally fragile family matriarch, (played by Academy Award-nominee, Kathleen Quinlan)-- is an intricately buried secret that, if revealed, could alter their lives irrevocably. A searing study of denial, deception, and self-delusion, AFTER is also a powerful portrait of the lengths we go to protect those we love. (C) Paladin

"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.

[There's] a fairly far-fetched twist that feels out of place in this realism-based drama.

Audience Reviews for After

I'm not really sure what was supposed to work about this film. The performances are pretty horrible, the screenplay is tired, and the third act twist is seen coming from a mile away. Even if you take away all the cheese and bad acting from the film, all you're left with is an empty, poorly written film. Avoid it.
