Keira Knightley loves time travelling it seems, for she’s starring in another period drama, The Aftermath.
Set in post-WWII Germany, Knightley portrays Rachael Morgan, who arrives in the ruins of Hamburg to be reunited with her husband, Lewis. He’s a British colonel charged with helping to rebuild the war-ravaged city, and he’s made a decision that stuns our Rach – despite it being requisitioned by the British government, Lewis is letting the house’s previous dwellers, a German widower and his troubled daughter, share the place with them. Apparently we can expect “enmity and grief” that gives way to “passion and betrayal”.
Directed by James Kent (Testament of Youth) and produced by Ridley Scott, The Aftermath also stars Alexander Skarsgård, Jason Clarke and Kate Phillip.
The Aftermath is set for a cinematic release in April, 2019.
