Sun Deleivers on Emotion and Artful Filming
16 March 2018 | by davidbutlerdesignsSee all my reviews

After the Sun Fell is one of those films that is hard to categorize. It tells the story of a family in denial over a horrible loss, and the dysfunction that can arise from turning away from it. Adam (Danny Pudi), plays an outsider, an artist friend of the families' son, Brandon (Neal Bledsoe). Pudi is dealing with his own sense of loneliness as the story opens and decides to tag along with Brandon to visit his parents. As the stranger to this family of characters, caught in an emotional tangle, Adam becomes the unintentional catalyst that bubbles up family secrets and hidden pain for one last time. After the Sun Fell includes tragically humorous performances by Joanna Bayless as Brandon's mom and Lance Hendrickson as the dad as well as Diana DeGarno's performance as Piper the complex waitress and house cleaner with her own agenda. With a beautiful backdrop of fall colors Tony Glazer (director) and Adrian Correia (Cinematographer) submerge you into the emotions of this ensemble of messes and even subtly deliver the ghosts of the past in the filming. This Art film portrays a family in transition with an incredible ensemble cast - a testament to old wounds and healing. After the Sun Fell is a beautiful, quirky film, whose characters, house and background will stay with you for quite some time.
