Movie Info

What happens when you lose the foundation of your family? In the wake of a husband and father's death, the family members he leaves behind find themselves adrift-and in danger of drifting apart-as they each try to find meaning in a world without the man who held them together. Mother Suzanne (Andie MacDowell) tentatively seeks companionship-but her attempts at dating only drive a wedge between her and older son Nicholas (Chris O'Dowd), whose own relationship with his girlfriend is disintegrating. Meanwhile, younger son Chris (James Adomian) deals with grief in his own complicated-and increasingly worrying-way. What plays out between the trio is a beautifully observed, powerfully emotional journey that speaks to the strength of family ties.

Audience Reviews for Love After Love

  • Apr 10, 2019
    If Closer had been made by Ingmar Bergman, I guess the result would have been something like this, an adult, soul-crushing family drama about love, death and the effect of time on those who grieve, with an oppressive cinematography that reflects well the characters' emotional state.
