Paladin, in partnership with Accretion Films, will distribute After, an allegedly haunting and powerful psychological thriller, on August 8.
The film marks the feature directorial debut of Pieter Gaspersz, who also produced with Sabrina Gennarino, who wrote the original screenplay. The film will be simultaneously unveiled on digital platforms and on DVD through Virgil Films who acquired all North American digital and home entertainment rights.
“Set in icy upstate New York in the winter of 2002, After is about the Valentinos, a middle class clan facing financial hardship–their family stone cutting business is slowly failing–and coping with the usual rivalries and resentments that affect all but their absent daughter, Samantha, who has recently escaped Rochester for a new life in lower Manhattan. At their center is matriarch Nora (Quinlan), whose cheerful exterior masks an emotional fragility of which the entire family is painfully aware and fiercely protective. But, their delicate balance is threatened by a carefully concealed secret that, once revealed, will change their lives forever.”
Academy Award-nominee, Kathleen Quinlan toplines a cast that also features John Doman, Pablo Schreiber, Adam Scarimbolo, Diane Neal, Darrin Dewitt Henson, Bruno Gunn, Mandy Gonzalez, and Gennarino.
