Jason Clarke co-stars as Col. Lewis Morgan, Knightley’s husband, in the big-screen adaptation of Rhidian Brook’s 2013 novel.

Frequent period piece star Keira Knightley can be seen in the role of Rachael Morgan in The Aftermath, the cinematic adaptation of Rhidian Brook’s 2013 book about love, grief and heartbreak in 1946 Hamburg.

Jason Clarke co-stars as Rachael’s husband, Col. Lewis Morgan. We see in the beginning of the film, that the couple relocates from England to Hamburg to assist in efforts to rebuild the city, which was devastated by British bombers during the summer of 1943.

“They’re still finding bodies,” Lewis tells his wife as they pass through the rubble-ridden streets of Hamburg. “It’s chaos out there.”

During their stay, the Morgans requisition the house of Stefan Lubert (Alexander Skarsgard), a German widower who lost his wife during the bombings. Taking care of Stefan and his young daughter, Lewis gives permission to the Luberts to live with him and Rachael instead of subjecting them to look for a new home.

Living close to one another, Rachael and Stefan soon develop a mutual attraction and find themselves in a passionate love affair. But they soon realize that their conflicting nationalities and ideologies threaten to take a tool on their relationship — and their families.

The Aftermath is all set to mark director James Kent’s second theatrically released feature after 2014’s Testament of Youth. The movie which was executive produced by Ridley Scott, was adapted for the screen by Brook and the writing team of Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse (Race).

The torrid romantic drama will be all set to feature in theaters on April 26, 2019.
