As if driven by some inescapable force, Isabel, an orphanage director in the slums of Calcutta, has devoted her life to caring for impoverished children. She's also become surrogate mother to a vulnerable seven-year-old boy, Jai, with whom she shares such a deep emotional bond, that they're nearly inseparable.
Roger EbertFull Review Average It feels very much like the kind of movie that would play at a film festival attended mainly by rich people who have summer homes in the community where the festival happens. This is a Sad Rich People movie, no more so than a lot of American films dating back to the dawn of cinema...
Rolling StoneFull Review Average Pedigree or no, After the Wedding is eventually revealed to be just another glossy mediocrity suffused with upper-crust guilt. After the movie's over, however, you can't quite shake how Williams has made you think it's a better work than it is.
Slant MagazineFull Review Poor Like her abandoned Bindi, Jai and the poverty he bears the burden of representing are just convenient, even attractive, images for the film, propping up a frivolous, superficial story about white families and their first-world problems.
