A Film That Creeps Up On You
16 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

I watched it yesterday and find myself thinking about it today. What a great little film. After reading the other reviews I realize what a superb actress Marcia Gay Harden is. I often have a strong reaction when I see her in films and now I understand that it's her performance that causes the reaction. I had thought that it's her, but it's not her as a person, it's the characters she's portraying, such as Jane in this film, Lee Krasner in Pollock, and others. She was so convincing as a depressed, reclusive introvert and then, even though the plot was predictable, it was delicious to watch. Oscar Jaenada playing the male lead was perfect as a total opposite from Harden's character. And then, the scenery: gorgeous! Ending the film with a quote from Ann Frank was unexpected and moving. I'd suggest if you or someone you know is depressed, watch After Words. And even if you're not.
