Winner of a BAFTA Breakthrough Award
After Love tells the story of Mary Hussain (Joanna Scanlan), who converted to Islam when she married her sweetheart decades ago. She is now in her early 60s, living quietly in Dover with her ferry captain husband, Ahmed. Following his unexpected death, she discovers that Ahmed had a secret life just 21 miles away, across the channel in Calais. The shocking discovery compels her to go there to find out more and, as she grapples with her shattered sense of identity, her search for understanding has surprising consequences. Subtitled.
After Love has the agony of a domestic tragedy and the tension of a Hitchcock thriller. The Guardian
