Director Charlotte Wells
At a fading vacation resort, 11-year-old Sophie treasures rare time together with her loving and idealistic father Calum. 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 last 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 an incredible 7 British Independent Film Awards (BIFA)
“Aftersun may be small in scale, but it leaves a distinct and lasting impression. No question, it’s the best British movie this year”. James Mottram, NME
“Capturing the thick, complex reality of Mescal and Corio’s bond — registering its quick, microscopic fluctuations and tracking its slow tectonic shifts — is Wells’ great achievement” – NY Times
