Rating: 2/4 -- Even though the film has a plodding pace there are flashes of honesty and brilliance that make this film worth a passive look. Full Review

Sam isn't particularly likable, but Cumming plays him with great empathy, finding a broken, complicated man beneath the abrasive surface. Full Review

Some stronger filmmaking would be welcome, sure, but "After Louie" has an honesty that's often just as valuable. Full Review

Its subject matter is interesting, and it's right to remind viewers of the need for different generations of queer people to communicate, but After Louie is burdened by narrative and dialogue clichés that undermine its emotional appeal. Full Review

While After Louie might not always approach its content in a subtle way, the film's passion, insights and feeling frequently hit home regardless. Full Review

While it's well-intentioned to a fault, and driven by deep convictions, the film also is diffuse, lethargically paced and short on thematic trenchancy, building powerful individual moments but seldom sustaining a compelling narrative thread. Full Review

As an actor, [Zachary] Booth can't quite keep up with [Alan] Cumming, but Braeden is likable in ways that the cynical Sam is not, so it evens out in the end. Full Review

Description by

Sam (Alan Cumming), an artist and activist from ACT UP, lived through the early years of HIV/AIDS a man scarred and still struggling with survivor's guilt. Cemented into an oppressive past, he is bewildered by a younger generation of carefree gay men with their uninhibited use of social media, sexting, and seeming political indifference. But when he meets the seductive young Braeden (Zachary Booth), an intergenerational relationship blossoms between them -- one capable of reawakening Sams artistic soul and reviving his wilted heart.
