Far more juvenile and unrealistic than most TV movies
Honestly, After the Ball was difficult to watch. It was so unrealistic and silly – to the extent of being juvenile – that it was difficult to be engaged in the movie. And I am accustomed to watching a lot of TV movies and lower my standards appropriately.
Its problems are
* simple, one-note characters
* a ridiculous plot with characters acting in completely unrealistic ways
* no chemistry between the romantic leads
* dialogue that sounds as if it was written by children
* an insulting depiction of the fashion industry
* an insulting depiction of parents (clueless) and step-parents (so evil and malicious that they nonsensically behave in ways that hurt themselves)
This is fit for young children. However, if you’re an adult, consider surfing the other channels. I’m sure you’ll find something that deserves your time more than this. I mean, Really.
Go after it now! Its SO wonderful
Kate Kassell (Portia Doubleday) is a very talented clothes designer and is searching for an entry level job in haute couture. However, no one will hire her because her dad, Lee Kassell (Chris Noth) is a top producer of “knockoff” ladies wear. Therefore, Kate has no choice except to work for her father. Alas, her wicked stepmother, Elise (Lauren Holly) and her two evil stepsisters don’t want her there and work behind the scenes to get her fired. In truth, Mr. Kassell has been in mourning since Kate’s mother died and has let Elise have too much say at Kassell clothing. Moreover, Kate looks so much like her mother that Lee has become distant to his own daughter, somewhat unconsciously. Kate’s only real friend at the firm is Daniel (Marc-Andre Grondin), who creates shoes. All too soon, Kate is indeed let go, as her father believes she has leaked designs to a competitor. But, ho ho, things can change. Kate’s aunt and uncle encourage her to go back to Kassell as a disguised male named Nate and turn the company on its ear. It happens. Nate is soon beloved by almost all, especially Mr. Kassell, with the three wicked women working to find a way to give Nate the boot. Daniel even asks Kate to attend a fashion ball with him but she also has to show up as Nate. Changing from one to the other often in the women’s room, Kate overhears just how devious her stepmother’s plans really are. Can Kate/Nate find true love, a great job, and give Elise and the two young witches the heave-ho? This is really a great new take on the classic Cinderella story, fashion style. Doubleday is truly amazing as the woman who must play a man, at times, and she is beautiful. Grondin, Noth, Holly, and the rest of the cast is terrific, too. Add on great scenery, fabulous costumes, a polished script and an energetic direction and what, what’s not to love? Go after it now, romcom fans and anyone else as well!
