Aftersun

12A

Winner of the BAFTA for Outstanding Debut by British Writer, Director, or Producer – Charlotte Wells. Nominated for the Oscar for Best Actor.

The stunning debut from Scottish writer-director Charlotte Wells, Aftersun juxtaposes a hopeful coming-of-age story with a poignant, intimate family portrait that leaves an indelible impression.

At a fading vacation resort in the late 1990s, 11-year-old Sophie (Frankie Corio) treasures rare time together with her loving and idealistic father, Calum (BAFTA winner Paul Mescal, Normal People). As a world of adolescence creeps into view, beyond her eye Calum struggles under the weight of life outside of fatherhood.

Twenty years later, Sophie’s tender recollections of their holiday become a powerful and heartrending portrait of their relationship, as she tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn’t, in Charlotte Wells’ superb and searingly emotional debut film.

Winner of the French Touch Jury Prize at the Cannes 2022 Critics’ Week and the Grand Prize at the Deauville American Film Festival. Named Best Film of 2022 by The Guardian, The Observer, The Skinny and Sight & Sound.

Contains a sequence featuring flashing lights that may affect those susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.

“You feel deeply for these characters, even after only a few scenes, and Wells aptly sucks you into their world.” Observer

“Rumors of something remarkable have circled around “Aftersun” since its première, at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and guess what? The rumors are true.” New Yorker

“The astonishingly assured directorial debut of Charlotte Wells, a Scottish filmmaker who sourced much of the script from her own autobiographical details.” Spectrum Culture
