Trivia

Josephine Langford admitted in an interview that she read the first few chapters of After on Wattpad several years before being cast as Tessa. See more »

Goofs

During Tessa's debate with Hardin about "Pride and Prejudice", one of Hardin's many tattoos shown is one in Hebrew on his right upper arm. The letters of these two words are written backwards on his arm (left to right), thus the words don't make any sense that way. They're supposed to be written from right to left, and they mean: "We are all stupid". See more »

Quotes

Hardin Scott: She took my hand and led me out of the darkness and showed me that whatever our souls are made of, hers and mine are the same.

An intense college romance with passion
11 April 2019 | by ronakkotechaSee all my reviews

After is the kind of film that could have gone horribly wrong. Well, it had all the ingredients - good girl, bad girls, brooding mysterious college hottie, wannabe college teens sporting nose piercings & tattoos, dysfunctional families & broken marriages..the list will go on. But what trumps all of this the heavyduty emotional texture of the film. The intense romance that develops between Tessa and Hardin in a conventional yet very mystical way. There are not many twists and the narrative is simple. However, it hoodwinks you into feeling that something really uncanny will happen - whether or not it does, is for you to find out. Makeout scenes are aplenty but none OTT. They are aesthetic and complimentary to the storytelling. Director Jenny Gage handles that well with his young, good looking actors keeping their next-door image intact. Audience will relate with their characters and root for both of them. Pace is slow but consistent with moments that will stay with you. Overall, AFTER is the kind of college romance everyone hopes for - it's got love, lust and heartbreak in equal measure!
