Love After Love, with a career performance by Andie MacDowell, looks at 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. Suzanne (MacDowell, Sex, Lies & Videotape, Four Weddings and a Funeral) tentatively seeks companionship – but her attempts at dating only drive a wedge between her and older son Nicholas (Chris O’Dowd, Bridesmaids, Molly’s Game), whose own relationship with his girlfriend is disintegrating. Meanwhile, younger son Chris (James Adomian, BoJack Horseman) deals with grief in his own complicated – and increasingly worrying – way. What plays out is a beautifully observed, powerfully emotional journey that speaks to the strength of family ties.
Called an “intimate, insightful indie drama” by Nick Schager of Variety, Love After Love won the cinematography award at the Tribeca Film Festival.
