AfterglowposterBBB.5

(out of 5)


  is luminous in this enjoyable character study as a lonely wife to a philandering husband () who is having an affair with a beautiful young woman () whose husband () is starting up an affair with Christie. It has director Alan Rudolph’s accustomed methodically low-burn style, but the style is perfectly suited to the characterizations, and the classy-looking sets and moody jazz score by Mark Isham fit just as well. Photography of Montreal locations is gorgeous and the though the outcome is nothing exciting, you’ll love watching these actors in action.
