With director James Kent’s The Aftermath opening in theaters this weekend, I recently sat down with Keira Knightley to talk about the drama based on the novel of the same name by Rhidian Brook. The film, set in 1946 post-war Germany, is about a British couple (Knightley and Jason Clarke) that is finally reunited after years apart. Clark plays a British colonel whose job is to help rebuild the city, but tensions arise when he decides to share the house they’ve been assigned with its previous owners, a German widower (Alexander Skarsgård) and his troubled daughter.
During the interview, Keira Knightley talked about why she wanted to be part of the movie, how it’s a grown up love story, the way the film deals with subject matter rarely shown on screen, and if she has any plans on directing.
