EXCLUSIVE: David Duchovny, Hope Davis, and Timothy Hutton are starring in After The Fall, a film that is just getting underway in Connecticut. Scripted by Carroll Cartwright (What Maisie Knew), the film is being directed by Anthony Fabian (Skin) and produced by Anthony Mastromauro’s Identity Films.
The film is based on the true story of John and Brenda Fareri, grieving parents who used the unexpected death of their young daughter Maria as the impetus to build a world class state of the art children’s hospital where families are welcomed into the healing process. It has become the template for facilities that are more inclusive of the families of ailing kids.
“John and Brenda Fareri are truly extraordinary people,” said Mastromauro, whose Identity Films just wrapped the Claire Danes-James Mardsen-starrer As Cool As I Am. Duchovny and Davis play the parents, while Hutton plays Komiske, who helped them obtain funds for the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital.
