Chris Noth Talks After the Ball

Earnestly reigniting a heartfelt relationship between an estranged parent and child can be an emotionally daunting endeavor, especially when you don’t know how to best overcome the differences that have formed after undergoing a painful experience together. That intimidating process of initially reconnecting, and subsequently overcoming your contrasting opinions on how to best approach life again as you contend with that harrowing occurrence, is relatably explored in director Sean Garrity’s new comedy, ‘After the Ball.’ The family film, which opened this weekend in theaters and on VOD, mixes compelling sentiments and natural humor between its father and daughter, played Chris Noth and Portia Doubleday, to emphasize that no matter what dilemmas they’re forced to overcome together, maintaining familial relationships is one of the most important things in life.

‘After the Ball’ follows Kate (Doubleday) as she graduates with a degree from New York’s Fashion Institute. As she begins looking for a job in couture, no designer wants to hire her, as she’s the daughter of Lee Kassell (Noth), a retail guru whose clothes are inspired by his competition. So she reluctantly returns to Montreal and stays with her godmother, Bella (Mimi Kuzyk), who owns the title vintage clothing store, and her friend Richard (Carlo Rota), an actor with many talents.

Supportive of her talent, Bella and Richard encourage Kate to work with Lee at his company, despite the fact that he has missed a great deal of her life since her mother’s death. While she’s reluctant to join Kassell Clothing, she takes the job, in an effort to reconnect with her estranged father and have the opportunity to begin working as a designer. However, her stepmother, Elise (Lauren Holly), who’s the vice-president of the company, and two stepsisters, Tannis (Natalie Krill) and Simone (Anna Hopkins), are determined to stop Kate from moving up in the company. In an effort to force her to quit, they make her assort the company’s accessory room. While working on that assignment, she meets the quiet and reserved Daniel (Marc-André Grondin), who works in the shoe department of the company, and is the only one at Kassaell Clothing who sees her full potential.

When Elise and her daughters’ plan doesn’t work, they plant evidence on Kate’s phone, showing that she she publicly leaked the latest designs Kassell Clothing was working on. Lee is then forced to fire his daughter, which prompts Bella and Richard to convince Kate to transform herself into a fictional up-and-coming designer, Nate, to infiltrate the company and prove Elise’s destruction. Combing Kate’s inspiring party dress line, Everyday Princess, with her alliance with Daniel and Maurice (David Michael), another company employee who doesn’t approve of Elise, Tannis and Simone, she ambitiously works to save her father’s company under the guise of Nate.

Noth took the time recently to talk about filming ‘After the Ball’ over the phone. Among other things, the actor discussed how he was drawn to play Lee in the comedy in part because it’s a genuine, family-driven film that has positive themes and images for all audiences, especially young children; and how he enjoyed building the father and daughter relationship with Doubleday on screen, as she’s a versatile and talented actress who effortlessly embraced playing the dual roles of Kate and Nate.
