August 16, 2014
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.

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.
