In many ways, After the Wedding almost reverses that theme, calling into question the very misleadingness of appearances, putting to the test that acquired habit that we, like Jacob, tend to have, of seeking traces of ill intent in every nook of a situation we deem too replete with good intentions. But the story starts with co-star Michelle Williams as Isabel, an idealistic activist whom we first meet meditating at the orphanage she runs in India. It is a remake of the by. Isabel is unexpectedly invited to the wedding and the events that ensue force her to confront decisions she made 20 years ago as well as a man from her past, who turns out to be Theresa's husband Crudup. That might be enough information for you to guess the first of two big, melodramatic plot twists.

Review: After the Wedding

after the wedding

Three powerful, emotionally charged films linked by a recurring motif: the random suddenness with which calamity can enter lives, alter them forever, and yet not necessarily destroy them. In Open Hearts and Brothers, calamity strikes directly and very early on a paralyzing car crash in the former, the loss of a husband in Afghanistan in the latter. Secrets are also revealed including an unexplained charity worth 20 million dollars. At this juncture the film veers off in an entirely different direction. But because these characters are holding so much back, it nonetheless can be a difficult to fully empathize with them.

But once again, Bier and Jensen whisk us away in an unexpectedly thought-provoking direction as the forceful Jorgen, seemingly unfazed by the surrounding simmering melodrama, makes Jacob a surprisingly generous offer. A mysterious magnate, Jorgen Rolf Lassgard , seems puzzlingly keen to help—on the peculiar condition that Jacob travel to Denmark to meet with him face to face. For reasons that remain unclear at this point, Jacob is particularly unwilling to return to his native land. Bier uses clichés not merely to upend them—that would be too easy—but to force us to challenge those short-cut judgments and ill-conceived assumptions we too often use to gauge the world around us. In After the Wedding, the tragedy is not so brutally evident, at least not initially. And Williams and Moore both deliver compelling, nuanced performances with plenty of tense chemistry in their big scenes together.
