Movie tip: "After the Wedding"
After the Wedding
Michelle Williams is one of those actresses, like Carey Mulligan, who conveys her characters’ feelings and vulnerabilities with absolute transparency. It’s as though they let you peek into their character’s souls. Williams is once again luminous in this drama, based on a Danish movie but with the main roles’ genders flipped. Williams is a woman working at an orphanage in India when she is called to New York to talk to a businesswoman who might make a very significant donation. The real story, though, is about old relationships and past lies. I could figure out the hidden secrets pretty early on, and they all seemed a bit contrived. But with Williams and Julianne Moore in the cast, the performances trump the sometimes-tortured plot twists.
