After the Wedding

After the Wedding

Directed by Susanne Bier • 2006 • Denmark
Starring Mads Mikkelsen, Sidse Babett Knudsen

Susanne Bier’s electrifying, Academy Award–nominated drama follows a Mumbai-based humanitarian-aid worker (Mads Mikkelsen, leading a powerhouse ensemble cast) who reluctantly returns to Copenhagen in order to procure money for the orphanage he operates. There, he finds himself at the center of his benefactor’s calamitous family crisis as long-buried secrets and life-changing revelations come to light over the course of a tumultuous wedding. Blending unabashedly old-fashioned melodramatics with a breathlessly kinetic visual style, Bier makes every hairpin emotional twist and turn viscerally felt.

Limited engagement ends September 30
