After the Wedding

After the Wedding benefits from solid casting and strong source material, yet proves to be a giant spark to emotional life.

Isabel (Michelle Williams) has dedicated her life to working with the children in an orphanage in Calcutta.

Theresa (Julianne Moore) is the multimillionaire head of a media company who lives with her artist husband (Billy Crudup) and their twin boys in New York.

When word comes to Isabel of a mysterious and generous grant for the financially struggling orphanage, she must travel to New York to meet the benefactor–Theresa–in person.

The Sad Rich White People Movie is one of our favourite genres at The Flicks, and indeed the white people in this English-language remake of Danish film-maker’s Susanne Bier’s 2006 tearjerker are very sad and very rich. However, we see an Oscar nominee heading their way – for sure!
