Andie MacDowell lands herself a plum role, playing a newly widowed woman grappling with grief and guilt in the upcoming ensemble drama "Love After Love," for which a trailer has been released online.

The film, which also stars Irish comic actor Chris O'Dowd (St. Vincent, Bridesmaids) who is taking on a more dramatic role than we are used to seeing him in as MacDowell's bereaved son, revolves around the lives of an upper middle-class New York family as they navigate feelings of sorrow following the death of its patriarch (played by character actor Gareth Williams).

Though MacDowell is perhaps best known for her work in rom-coms such as "Groundhog Day" and "Four Weddings and a Funeral," she seems to be delivering here a performance more akin to her turn in "Sex, Lies, and Videotape" as a middle-aged woman who stirs up resentment and strong emotions within her family when she starts seeing other men in the wake of her husband's death.

Marking the feature debut of writer-director Russell Harbaugh, the film also co-stars James Adomian (Comedy Bang! Bang!), Juliet Rylance (The Knick), Dree Hemingway (Listen Up Philip), and Francesca Faridany (Falling Water).

"Love After Love" premiered last year at the Tribeca Film Festival, where it won a Best Cinematography award for the film's cinematographer Chris Teague. The movie is scheduled to hit select theaters and VOD on March 30th.

synopsis:
What happens when you lose the foundation of your family? In the wake of a husband and father’s death, the family members he leaves behind find themselves adrift -- and in danger of drifting apart -- as they each try to find meaning in a world without the man who held them together. Mother Suzanne (Andie MacDowell) tentatively seeks companionship -- but her attempts at dating only drive a wedge between her and older son Nicholas (Chris O'Dowd), whose own relationship with his girlfriend is disintegrating. Meanwhile, younger son Chris (James Adomian) deals with grief in his own complicated -- and increasingly worrying -- way. What plays out between the trio is a beautifully observed, powerfully emotional journey that speaks to the strength of family ties.
