Set in the winter of 2002 in chilly upstate New York, AFTER tells the story of a middle class family struggling with the financial consequences of a failing family business and a series of intergenerational conflicts and rivalries.
But, what truly threatens to upset their delicate balance-- and shatter the emotionally fragile family matriarch, (played by Academy Award-nominee, Kathleen Quinlan)-- is an intricately buried secret that, if revealed, could alter their lives irrevocably.
A searing study of denial, deception, and self-delusion, AFTER is also a powerful portrait of the lengths we go to protect those we love.Deceit: de·ceit (n): the act or practice of deceiving or misleading somebody.
Also called deceitfulness.
Director, Pieter Gaspersz, beautifully and intelligently peels away the layers, to reveal the tragic secret that haunts this family, whose actions have unforeseeable consequences.
Nothing is as it seems and you will want to watch it again to see what you missed.
