Julianne Moore and Billy Crudup, who play husband and wife in this movie, also acted together in Trust the Man (2005), in which they play friends (not love interests). Both After the Wedding (2019) and Trust the Man (2005) were directed by Bart Freundlich, who is married to Julianne Moore. See more »
"After the Wedding" (directed by Bart Freundlich) was a pleasant surprise, to say the least! I walked in without knowing much more aside from its stellar cast, including Julianne Moore (one of my all-time favourites), Michelle Williams, Billy Crudup and Will Chase. At first glance, the film may resemble a romantic comedy, or a family-drama, however "After the Wedding" does not quite fit into any one category. This movie is certainly not "Father of the Bride" or "Four Weddings and a Funeral", although an early scene comically shows Julianne Moore singing along to Lady Gaga's "Edge of Glory" in her car. As the title suggests, it is after the wedding that the plot thickens. The brilliant, suspenseful music by composer Mychael Danna greatly contributes to the film's tone and style. While sometimes predictable, there are numerous plot twists and turns that will keep your eyes glued to the screen. The acting, directing, cinematography, and set design were all top-notch. The film has a very independent, professional feel to it, which is such a welcomed change from all of those Marvel blockbusters out there. I would recommend "After the Wedding" to anyone looking to take a chance on something different, something thought-provoking and intelligent. Do not miss this film!
