Director-screenwriter Alan Rudolph once again teams with producer
Robert Altman (THE PLAYER) for this haunting, funny film starring
Nick Nolte and Julie Christie as a married American couple living
in Montreal haunted by the memory of their runaway daughter.
Plumber Lucky (Nolte) starts an affair with beautiful young client
Marianne (Lara Flynn Boyle), who's desperate to have a baby and
stifled by her marriage to her narcissistic husband, Jeffrey (Jonny
Lee Miller). Meanwhile, Lucky's wife, former B-movie actress
Phyllis (Christie), spends her time looking for their daughter on
the streets of Montreal and watching videotapes of her old movies.
When she inadvertently finds herself meeting Jeffrey and agreeing
to spend the weekend with him, the stage is set for an inevitable
showdown among all concerned.
This beautifully photographed and brilliantly written film is
marked by a stunning, Oscar-nominated performance by Christie, who
masterfully combines sexuality, class, and world-weary pain. Nolte
is also top-notch, again proving himself one of America's most
formidable actors. AFTERGLOW is that rare combination in movies:
sexy, funny, intelligent, tragic, and deeply moving.
