Love After Love

Drama; NR; 91m.  OPENS April 27.

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.

 

“This first-time feature from writer/director Russell Harbaugh has an understated, intimate, pointillist style, with a cool jazz score that matches its improvisational tone.” – Nell Minow, ROGEREBERT.COM

 

“Challenging, unflinching and deeply honest.” –Katie Walsh, LOS ANGELES TIMES

 

“An unflinching portrait of how grief can unravel a tightknit family in ways both banal and heart-wrenching.” –Christopher Kompanek, WASHINGTON POST
