Not content to rest on her laurels from “Gloria,” Julianne Moore leads a second English-language remake of another foreign film: “After the Wedding,” an adaptation of Suzanne Bier’s 2006 Oscar-nominated drama of the same name. Here is the official synopsis:
Isabel (Michelle Williams) has dedicated her life to working with the children in an orphanage in Calcutta. Theresa (Julianne Moore) is the multimillionaire head of a media company who lives with her artist husband (Billy Crudup) and their twin boys in New York. When word comes to Isabel of a mysterious and generous grant for the financially struggling orphanage, she must travel to New York to meet the benefactor—Theresa—in person.
Moore herself is executive producing while her husband, Bart Freundlich, is directing. Debuting at Sundance earlier this year, Sony Pictures Classics is slated to release “After the Wedding” in New York and Los Angeles on August 9. Watch the trailer below.
