After their young son Jacob (Edward Furlong) is accused of murder, Ben (Liam Neeson) and Carolyn Ryan (Streep) do everything in their power to prove their son’s innocence, while the neighbors in their small town turn against them.

Critics couldn’t deny that Before and After had enviable star power, but they said the acting couldn’t overcome unrelatable characters and an uneven script.

Despite the presence of Meryl Streep, Liam Neeson and the usually reliable Edward Furlong, this movie was too conventional.
