"The Sad Rich White People Movie is one of my favourite genres, and indeed the white people in this English-language remake of Danish film-maker’s Susanne Bier’s 2006 tearjerker are very sad and very rich. Its drama takes place between a lavish country mansion in upstate New York and a five-star hotel in Manhattan."

★★★★

"This entirely insufferable film is a sugary Hollywood remake of the 2006 Danish drama After the Wedding, which was directed by Susanne Bier and starred Mads Mikkelsen as a troubled aid worker running a cash-strapped charity in Mumbai, summoned back to Copenhagen for what seems like a miraculous meeting with a rich benefactor. The film switches genders, which makes a central plot point much less plausible, and it has no idea about what facial expression the now female lead is supposed to have."

"A supreme example of classed-up mediocrity, “After the Wedding,” a pointless remake of Susanne Bier’s 2007 melodrama of the same name, offers little that’s new and a lot that’s predictable, even to first-time viewers. What has changed in the intervening years is us: The economic and political environment into which this new version drops might cause us to view its plot through more cynical eyes."
