The Aftermath will be shown at the Odeon from tomorrow (Friday).

Set in post-war Germany in 1946, Rachael Morgan, played by Keira Knightley, arrives in the ruins of Hamburg, Germany, in the bitter winter. She aims to be reunited with her husband Lewis (Jason Clarke), a British colonel charged with rebuilding the shattered city.

But, as they set off for their new home, Rachael is stunned to discover Lewis has made an unexpected decision – they will be sharing the grand house with its previous owner, Stefan Lubert, a German widower portrayed by Alexander Skarsgård.

Naturally, Colonel Morgan must leave to oversee the city’s reconstruction efforts, leaving Rachael and Stefan alone in the house with only the simmering tension to keep them company.

In this charged atmosphere, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal.

Based on the novel by Welsh writer Rhidian Brook, The Aftermath is directed by James Kent, who also helmed love-in-wartime drama Testament Of Youth, with the screenplay by Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse. Also starring is Martin Compston, Jannik Schümann, Fionn O’Shea and Tom Bell.

The Aftermath is the second on-screen collaboration between Keira Knightley and Jason Clarke, who played a married couple in 2015’s Everest.

Tickets, priced £4, are available at or on 03330 144501.
