“This effortlessly relaxed debut by Charlotte Wells is a subtle and complex investigation of post-divorce parenthood” ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆ The Guardian
Winning a jury prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, Charlotte Wells’ emotionally autobiographical debut is a charming tale that investigates the complexities of post-divorce parenthood from the perspective of Sophie, a now mature woman looking back on her childhood. As she reminisces about a time twenty years prior, she recalls the experience of a cheap Turkish package holiday, where her dad’s (Normal People’s Paul Mescal in one of his best roles to date) elusive nature becomes newly legible.
Critically adored and certain to stir nostalgia – both pleasure and yearning – Aftersun is coolly understated tale that is one of the best British debuts for many years.
