Keira Knightley is compelling in her starring role in The Aftermath, so you are going to want to make plans to see it.
Often, movies about war end at the final battle scene, when the stars of the film are victorious. This film tells a different story, since it begins after the WWII has ended.
It is based on the book by award winning author Rhidian Brook.
The physical and personal damages of war don’t end, when one side claims victory. In fact, the pain can last for decades.
This is a story that takes place immediately after WWII, when wounds are fresh, complex and raw.
The Aftermath is a movie you’ll probably want to watch more than once, so you can pick up on the nuances of the story. It is intense and thought provoking.
