Julianne Moore previously worked with husband Bart Freundlich in the films The Myth of Fingerprints and Trust the Man, and now she reteams with the filmmaker on After the Wedding. The feature, which is a remake of the acclaimed Susanne Bier film of the same name, centers on a family (Julianne Moore, Billy Crudup, Abby Quinn) whose lives are inextricably changed when the manager (Michelle Williams) of a Kolkata orphanage enters their life.
For Moore, collaborating with Freundlich was second nature. “I think we communicate very clearly. I’m always very clear about what I want to accomplish in a scene and I felt comfortable communicating that with him. And one of the things that he did that so impressed me in The Myth of Fingerprints, as a first time film director, was how easily he adapted himself to all the different styles of the actors he was working with. There were lots of different in there with a myriad of styles, and he was able to give each and every actor exactly what they needed. And there’s always his real generosity as a filmmaker and gives everybody the space they need to do the work that they’re doing. And that’s remained consistent throughout his career.”
