Virgil Films & Entertainment announced this past week that actor-turned-filmmaker Pieter Gaspersz’s debut film behind the camera, After, starring Kathleen Quinlan, will be making its domestic DVD debut on Sept. 23.
An Aug. 8 limited theatrical release is also planned.
Filmed on location in and around Rochester, New York, we are introduced to the Valentino family during the winter of 2002 … Nora (Quinlan) is the matriarch of the clan, educated, professional and very much the glue that her husband Mitch (John Doman) and their four adult children have come to rely on to hold things together.
But the illusion of strength can be deceiving as financial woes, the stress of a family growing apart (children do move on) and a carefully guarded secret from the past all seem to weigh heavily on Nora these days. Filmmaker Gaspersz takes these elements and slowly ratchets up the pressure until a tipping point, not only for Nora, but for others in the family as well.
No word just yet on bonus features included with the DVD release.
