The film — also starring Michelle Williams, Billy Crudup and Abby Quinn — follows the struggling director of an Indian orphanage whose past comes back to visit her after accepting an invitation to New York to the wedding of the daughter of a multi-millionaire potential benefactor.

Julianne Moore holds back the tears in this exclusive first look from After the Wedding, Bart Freundlich’s English-language reimagining of Susanne Bier’s Oscar-nominated 2006 Danish drama.

The film — also starring Michelle Williams, Billy Crudup and Abby Quinn — follows the struggling director of an Indian orphanage whose past comes back to visit her after accepting an invitation to New York to the wedding of the daughter of a multi-millionaire potential benefactor.

Presented by Ingenious Media, Rock Island Films and Riverstone Pictures, After the Wedding ­— currently in postproduction — is being produced by Joel B. Michaels.

In Bier’s original, Mads Mikkelsen and Rolf Lassgard played the lead roles. For his interpretation, Freundlich flipped the genders, with Moore — also the filmmaker’s wife — and Williams cast.

Cornerstone Films is handling international sales and distribution, and is co-repping domestic with Endeavor Content.
