In her vibrant directorial debut, Charlotte Wells crafts a poignant portrait of a father and daughter on a fateful holiday in the 1990s. Spending a hazy summer weekend together at a budget Turkish resort, 11-year-old Sophie (Frankie Corio, in a breakout performance) treasures this rare time with her father, the loving yet melancholic Calum (Emmy® nominee Paul Mescal, NORMAL PEOPLE), whose inner turmoil simmers beneath the surface. Years later, Sophie tenderly pieces together memories and home footage of that summer, struggling to reconcile the man she loved with the sides of him that will forever remain unknowable. A gorgeously textured drama, the Cannes prize-winning AFTERSUN established Wells as a promising new voice in cinema. An A24 release.
