Movie Info

Soaring over the dilapidated, ancient city of Calcutta we find an orphanage on the outskirts of town. Isabel; beautiful, soulful, something distant in her eyes, has made it her life's work to care for these children. In desperate need of money to keep the orphanage afloat, Isabel has seemingly found the perfect benefactor. But before the money is given, Isabel must travel to New York City to meet the woman behind the wealth. Theresa Young (Moore) couldn't have a more different life from Isabel. Theresa is a multi-millionaire who founded and runs a very successful media company. Her life is what people dream of; an estate just out of the city, a loving, artistic husband, Oscar -- and three children. The twin boys are adorable and devilish 7 year olds, and Grace, just 24, is the light of Theresa and Oscar's life. She is getting married this coming weekend on Theresa and Oscar's sprawling estate. These seemingly unconnected worlds are about to collide in an unexpected and deeply emotional journey that will alter each of these character's lives forever.

Critic Reviews for After the Wedding

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (7)

  • We're waiting for this pressure cooker of a scenario to go nuclear and spill gunk all over the pretty, expensive stuff. It never quite happens and, for all the actors' impeccable restraint, something is missing.

  • Viewed on its own terms, the remake does competent lip-service to the original.

  • For a film punctuated with emotion... After the Wedding sadly doesn't provoke much within the viewer.

  • The rare remake that honors the original but also finds its own reason for existing.

  • Freundlich's American remake of the Bier film flips the gender of the main characters, yielding predictably strong performances from Julianne Moore and Michelle Williams but otherwise removing the teeth...

  • After a point, the twists come so steadily that I actually found myself holding my breath for long stretches - despite the fact that I know the original well - eager to see how key revelations would play out within this new dynamic.
