Movie Review – After the Wedding (2019)

After the Wedding, 2019.

Written and Directed by Bart Freundlich.

Starring Michelle Williams, Julianne Moore, Billy Crudup, Abby Quinn, Alex Esola, Eisa Davis, Susan Blackwell, Azhy Robertson, Will Chase, and Doris McCarthy.

Synopsis:

A manager of an orphanage in Kolkata travels to New York to meet a benefactor.

There’s a difference between flawed likable characters and straight-up annoying characters; After the Wedding contains the latter. Written and directed by Bart Freundlich (remaking a relatively sanitized version of Susanne Bier’s Oscar-nominated Danish original), the narrative throws one revelation after another at the audience with each one intending to add moral complexity to its central characters, instead, making them out to be horrible selfish liars. You know you got problems when one protagonist is a do-gooder running an orphanage in India and valiantly trying to secure funds to enrich their lives, and even that person makes decisions that are head-scratching and ignore the bigger picture.

‘She’s Gotta Have It’ Writer Responds to John Boyega’s ‘Trash’ Comment Over Spike Lee Series — Exclusive
Editor’s note: Last week, John Boyega and others expressed outrage over an exchange from the fifth episode of Season 2 in Spike Lee’s Netflix series, “She’s Gotta Have It.” The scene finds Nola Darling (DeWanda Wise) and her black British lover Olu (Michael Luwoye) debating the impact of black British actors in Hollywood. The conversation eventually expands to the British involvement in the transatlantic slave trade and other major historical issues. Many viewers have taken particular issue with Nola describing black British actors as “cheap” and essentially ignorant of their own history, suffering from “Stockholm Syndrome.” Boyega saw a viral clip of the scene circulating online and simply labelled it “Trash.”

Boyega’s tweet was picked up by numerous media outlets. In response, the episode’s writer, Barry Michael Cooper, wrote a letter to Boyega, which he has provided to IndieWire below.

Emmy episode analysis: Michael Stuhlbarg (‘The Looming Tower’) deals with the aftermath of tragedy on ‘9/11’
Michael Stuhlbarg’s strong year isn’t over yet. Late in 2017 he appeared in three films that earned Oscar nominations for Best Picture: “Call Me by Your Name,” “The Post” and the ultimate winner “The Shape of Water.” Despite being a triple threat, Stuhlbarg wasn’t nominated for an Oscar himself, but now he’s nominated at the Emmys for Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor for the Hulu miniseries “The Looming Tower.” Stuhlbarg plays Richard Clarke, the real-life former chief counter-terrorism advisor on the National Security Council. He has submitted the final installment of the series, “9/11,” to Emmy voters for consideration.

The episode begins with Clarke giving his opening statement before the 9/11 Commission in which he apologized to the families of 9/11 victims and famously proclaimed, “Your government failed you.” We then flash back to Clarke at the White House, refusing to leave even though the building is being evacuated in
