Movie Info

An NYC Professor (Justin Long) spends the week reconnecting with his family while defending his reputation over controversial behavior at his college. Meanwhile, his family is determined to make an around-the-clock effort to support their matriarch, Agatha (Lynn Cohen), when she's admitted to New York's Presbyterian Hospital and is expected to die within a few days. No one's handling this particularly well and, to make matters worse, each family member is struggling with other problems of their own. Agatha's daughter, Diane (Fran Drescher) is fully unprepared for a life without her mother, and oddly enough, she ends up finding comfort in an unexpected place... her ex-husband. This laugh-out-loud comedy is about how sometimes your crazy family can really come through, just when you need them the most.

Critic Reviews for After Class (Safe Spaces)

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (4)

An even-tempered indie comedy, five parts late Woody Allen to one part 90s-period David Mamet.

December 8, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

We've seen many versions of this kind of story before, but there's something so spot-on and involving about the film, written and directed by Daniel Schechter... that it proves surprisingly refreshing.

December 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Time and again during "After Class," Schechter makes pinpoint-accurate choices that are even more impressive when, after it's done, you replay the movie in your mind, and you realize what an exceptional piece of work it is.

Top Critic

As in Schechter's previous movies, an unusually strong cast is key to making this touchy material work, with supporting players Lynn Cohen and Richard Schiff especially crucial.

December 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Framed within the touching, often humorous, story of a family rallying around their dying grandmother, the movie leaves us contemplating the fundamental value of empathy.

July 14, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Gentle, but thought-provoking drama about a young professor taking a wrong step in class, and about his family trying to step around the decline of their beloved grandmother.

February 18, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
