AFTER (2023)


Thomas Angeletti directs from a script by co-star Timothy J Cox a story of grief following the death of a police officer in the line of duty. The film is a moment in time as a grieving father and daughter ponder whether it’s better to let justice take its course or whether to get retribution.

The story here is the performances. Cox and Beth Metcalf bleed all over the screen as a father daughter mourning their loved one. It’s a supercharged pairing that makes this a film that grabs you by the throat and holds your attention.  I can only imagine how this played on the set as the raw emotions bled all over the floor. Its messy exchange, just like real life, which is why we are held spell bound by two performers operating at the top of their game.
