Before and After
1996
***
Director: Barbet Schroeder
Cast: Liam Neeson, Meryl Streep, Edward Furlong, Alfred Molina

Liam Neeson and Meryl Streep are both very good as a middle-aged couple whose son is charged with murder. The tragedy makes them question how far they are willing to go to protect their child. This drama is moody and powerful, but its anti-climactic ending is terrible. Based on Rosellen Brown’s novel.
