added: Tue, Nov 27th '18

Keira Knightley gets involved in an extramarital affair with an accused Nazi collaborator in the new international trailer for "The Aftermath," the post-WWII drama that also stars Alexander Skarsgard and Jason Clarke.

Based on Rhidian Brook's novel of the same name, the film, which is produced by filmmaker Ridley Scott, sees Knightley as Rachael Morgan, the wife of a British colonel, who, at the end of World War II, is assigned to rebuild the bomb-ravaged German city of Hamburg.

When Rachael travels to Germany to stay with her British husband for the winter, she is appalled to discover that she will be sharing a house with its previous owner, a wealthy German widower named Stefan (Skarsgard) who is believed to have been a Nazi collaborator during the war.

So, while her husband, Colonel Lewis Morgan (Clarke), spends most of his time rebuilding the city, Rachael is left alone with Stefan and his young daughter. But despite being initially repulsed by her German surroundings, Rachael, nevertheless, embarks on a secretive love affair with the sympathetic Stefan.

"The Aftermath" is directed by James Kent, who previously made the WWI romance drama "Testament of Youth." The film is currently scheduled to open theatrically on April 26, 2019.

THE AFTERMATH is set in postwar Germany in 1946. Rachael Morgan (Keira Knightley) arrives in the ruins of Hamburg in the bitter winter, 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 that Lewis has made an unexpected decision: They will be sharing the grand house with its previous owners, a German widower (Alexander Skarsgard) and his troubled daughter. In this charged atmosphere, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal.
