First-look image of Keira Knightley in The Aftermath

11 March 2017 12:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fox Searchlight Pictures and BBC Films have marked the end of principal photography of director James Kent’s (Testament of Youth) new film The Aftermath by releasing a first look image featuring Keira Knightley. Check it out below, along with the official synopsis…

The Aftermath is set in postwar Germany in 1946. Rachael Morgan (Keira Knightley) arrives in the ruins of Hamburg in the bitter winter, to be reunited with her husband Lewis (Jason Clarke), a British colonel charged with rebuilding the shattered city. But as they set off for their new home, Rachael is stunned to discover that Lewis has made an unexpected decision: They will be sharing the grand house with its previous owners, a German widower (Alexander Skarsgård) and his troubled daughter. In this charged atmosphere, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal.

Based on Rhidian Brook’s bestselling novel of the same name, The Aftermath »

Love is complicated for Keira Knightley

10 March 2017 8:31 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Murtada

It seems that Jason Clarke has cornered the market on playing husbands whose wives look elsewhere in 2017. That is one of the plot threads of the Sundance hit Mudbound where Carey Mulligan plays his wife, who has eyes for his brother played by Garrett Hedlund. And now in the The Aftermath he’s a British colonel in Germany right after WWII, whose wife (Keira Knightley) forms a bond with the German widower (Alexander Skarsgård) who used to own the house they now live in. The film just finished shooting in Prague under the helm of James Kent (Testament to Youth). It might appear on the fall festival circuit.

Knightley was seen this week in London shooting scenes for that Love Actually sequel we’ve been hearing so much about »

2018 Oscar Predictions: Best Director

9 March 2017 11:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The past few years of Best Director winners have proven that cinema stylists who can deliver scale and scope often get rewarded: see Ang Li’s “Life of Pi,” Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity” and A.G. Inarritu’s “The Revenant,” not to mention Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land.”

But the directors also recognize breakout talent (Benh Zeitlin’s “Beasts of the Southern Wild”) and great international directors such as Pedro Almodovar, Michael Haneke and Mike Leigh. And they appreciate films featuring a showcase performance or two.

Sundance standouts “Mudbound” and “Call Me By Your Name” boast sprawling ensemble casts and lush rural settings in the American South and Italy, respectively. Will the Academy directors welcome Dee Rees and Luca Guadagnino into their ranks, or “My Name is Doris” director Michael Showalter, who delivered a small-scale heart-tugger of a true romance, “The Big Sick”?
