After Love (12A)

Joanna Scanlan (Pin Cushion, The Thick Of It) gives a quietly devastating performance as a woman exploring her late husband’s secrets. Grappling with the death of her husband (Nasser Memarzia), Mary Hussain, who took the name Fatima when she converted to his Muslim faith, is tidying his things in their Dover home when she stumbles upon a secret, and sets off across the Channel to Calais to uncover the truth.  An accomplished, elegantly realised and insightful drama about the possibilities of connection across physical and cultural boundaries.  

"Anchored by a phenomenal performance by Scanlan, this is an accomplished debut from writer and director Aleem Khan" - Screen International
