As a shat­tered Ger­many be­gins to re­build it­self in the af­ter­math of the Sec­ond World War, British colonel Lewis Mor­gan (Ja­son Clarke) and his shel­tered wife, Rachael (Keira Knight­ley), ar­rive in Ham­burg in the midst of a bit­ter win­ter. Set­ting out for her new home, Rachael dis­cov­ers an un­ex­pected wit­ness to her re­cent re­union with her war hero hus­band – the house’s pre­vi­ous owner, Ger­man wid­ower Stephen (Alexan­der Skars­gard) and his trou­bled daugh­ter, who will be liv­ing with their vic­tors. In this emo­tion­ally charged at­mos­phere, ten­sions run high – yet as en­mity gives way to un­der­stand­ing, grief and betrayal foster a pas­sion un­like any other.

With all the ro­mance of Atone­ment and the dan­ger­ous drama of Al­lied, The Af­ter­math de­liv­ers ex­plo­sive chem­istry amongst the cap­ti­vat­ing com­plex­ity of lov­ing one’s en­emy. This breath­tak­ing pe­riod drama will trans­port you back to a truly unique point in his­tory: the af­ter­math of WWII. The Af­ter­math is in cin­e­mas April 11.
