After the Wedding

Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale's lachrymose villain) stars as Jacob, an altruistic Dane running an orphanage in India. When funds start running low, he jets back home to hit up a fat cat businessman for a loan. The businessman's one stipulation is that our protagonist stick around for his daughter's wedding. By pure coincidence--or is it?--the fat cat's wife turns out to be Jacob's old girlfriend. And the daughter getting married? She just might be Jacob's offspring. Director Susanne Bier (Open Hearts, Brothers) turns another tough political issue (world poverty) into a weepy family melodrama. In English, Danish, Swedish and Hindi with English subtitles. 120 minutes R.
