Cannes Film Review: ‘The Here After’

25 May 2015 8:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The kids are not all right in “The Here After,” a cold, controlled, minimalist drama about the aftermath of a crime committed by a teen in contempo rural Sweden.

Friday night telly used to be the highlight of the week for the committed sofa-dweller. Gone were the endless weekday soaps, Diy saviours and the dreaded Question of Sport, and in came a glorious line of high-kicking comedy and entertainment shows to cheer up the majority of us who did not want to be pressed up against the wall of a heaving bar, trying to get served.

Where have those shows gone? It wasn’t so long ago, was it, when we crashed into a pile of couch cushions, Budweiser in hand, scrunchy flung off with abandon as the opening bars of The Riverboat Song by Ocean Colour Scene filled the living room and »
