Movie Review – After the Wedding (2019)

After the Wedding, 2019.

Written and Directed by Bart Freundlich.

Starring Michelle Williams, Julianne Moore, Billy Crudup, Abby Quinn, Alex Esola, Eisa Davis, Susan Blackwell, Azhy Robertson, Will Chase, and Doris McCarthy.


A manager of an orphanage in Kolkata travels to New York to meet a benefactor.

There’s a difference between flawed likable characters and straight-up annoying characters; After the Wedding contains the latter. Written and directed by Bart Freundlich (remaking a relatively sanitized version of Susanne Bier’s Oscar-nominated Danish original), the narrative throws one revelation after another at the audience with each one intending to add moral complexity to its central characters, instead, making them out to be horrible selfish liars. You know you got problems when one protagonist is a do-gooder running an orphanage in India and valiantly trying to secure funds to enrich their lives, and even that person makes decisions that are head-scratching and ignore the bigger picture.
