After We Collided
- 1 hr 45 min
In the romantic drama film After We Collided, Tessa and Hardin try to make their relationship work after the tumultuous beginning of their union. The film is a sequel to the film After. Both films are based on romance novels by the writer Anna Todd. In the first installment of the story, college student Tessa felt out of her depth at her UK university. She was a good girl, and she didn't know much about the ways of the world. When she met cocky bad boy Hardin, she was unable to resist his roguish charm. Though he treated her badly, she was convinced she was in love. In the sequel, Hardin continues to be cruel to Tessa. And she continues to think she deserves it. Yes, he mistreats her sometimes, but he's also quick to apologize and tell her it won't happen again. Maybe she can change him if she just loves him hard enough? The film debuted in 2020 to overwhelmingly negative reviews from critics. Reviewers felt that fans of the books might like the movie version. But everyone else, they thought, will find little to like in the cliched and formulaic story.
