Description

At a vacation resort, 11-year-old Sophie treasures the time she spends with her loving and idealistic father. Twenty years later, Sophie reminisces about their last holiday together as she tries to come to terms with the man she didn’t always know.

 

Though Calum (Paul Mescal) is 30 and his daughter Sophie (Frankie Corio) just 11, they occasionally get mistaken for siblings. This is because of Calum’s baby face, but also his playful attitude: the pair really get along. Having split from Sophie’s mum, and having left their Edinburgh home for England, Calum knows how precious their time together is. Whether hanging by the pool, taking excursions on the sea, or shopping for carpets, Calum encourages Sophie’s abundant curiosity… until he doesn’t. Every now and then, with their MiniDV camera in hand, Sophie makes inquiries that Calum won’t accommodate.

 

Brimming with warmth and the ache of cherished memory, Scottish writer-director Charlotte Wells’ feature debut is a quiet revelation. Recalling a father–daughter journey to a Turkish seaside resort some 20 years after the fact, AFTERSUN employs the gentlest touch yet leaves an indelible mark.
