After the Wedding

This film is an absolutely brilliant slow burn.  It is also brilliantly cast – the main character’s dour personality really sets the tone for the rest of the film.  Even though the film only takes place over a few days you really feel an urgency to solve the various mysteries that are slowly revealed to the viewer.  While you can see the final conflict coming from ten miles away the resolution was something that was unexpected and brilliantly addresses one of the central philosophical questions in the movie.  I loved it.
