The stunning debut from Scottish writer-director Charlotte Wells, Aftersun weaves together a hopeful coming-of-age story with a poignant, intimate family portrait that leaves an emotional and lasting mark.
At a fading vacation resort in the late 1990s, 11-year-old Sophie 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 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.
