“Wells’s movie ripples and shimmers like a swimming pool of mystery” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

The debut feature film from Scottish-born, New York based director Charlotte Wells, Aftersun has been building acclaim on the festival circuit for months. Now, with many critics and publications lauding it as the film of the year, audiences can finally see what all the fuss is about.

Starring Paul Mescal — breakout star of TV’s Normal People — Aftersun sees Sophie (Celia Rowlson-Hall as an adult, and Frankie Corio as a child) reflect on the time she spent on holiday with her father (Mescal) twenty years previously. As memories, both real and imagined, fill the gaps between miniDV footage shot at a fading Turkish holiday resort, Sophie tries to piece together the man her father was.

Praised for its production design, performances and complex, tender disposition, Wells’ transporting film seems set to be a part of awards conversations for months to come.
