SYNOPSIS:

 

A glimpse into one family’s romantic, boisterous, messy, treacherous life, L​OVE AFTER LOVE catalogues the reunions and departures of a mother and her two grown sons over the course of several years. In the tradition of Woody Allen and John Cassavetes, L​OVE AFTER LOVE takes an unblinking look at a family navigating their way forward in the shadow of a shared tragedy.

LOVE AFTER LOVE is the feature film debut of writer­/director Russ Harbaugh, whose short R​OLLING ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING,​ on which our film is based, enchanted audiences at The Sundance Film Festival and the New Directors/New Films in 2012.  The script for L​OVE AFTER LOVE is also supported by and workshopped extensively at the Sundance Labs.  The film will be produced by the veteran Brooklyn­ based production company, Parts & Labor (​THE WITCH, BEGINNERS).​  It will star the great Chris O’Dowd (BRIDESMAIDS, THIS IS 40) and the infinitely charming Andie MacDowell (​GROUNDHOG DAY, FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL).
