Sony Pictures Classics has debuted the trailer for After the Wedding, which is opening in Los Angeles and New York on August 9th. Written and directed by Bart Freundlich (The Myth of Fingerprints, The Rebound, Wolves), After the Wedding stars Academy Award winner Julianne Moore, Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams, Billy Crudup, and Abby Quinn.
In the film, 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.
After the Wedding is an adaptation of Susanne Bier’s Academy Award-nominated Danish film of the same title and screened as an opening night selection at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
The film is produced by Joel B. Michaels and Harry Finkel. It is an Ingenious Media and Riverstone Pictures presentation, executive produced by Nik Bower and Deepak Nayar for Riverstone and Peter Touche and Andrea Scarso for Ingenious.
When they acquired the film, Sony Pictures Classics said: “Stunning performances with a nail biter of a story executed perfectly by director Bart Freundlich. After the Wedding makes for a perfect end of summer release.”
