Charlotte Wells’ film AFTERSUN will open on October 28th. Presented as a world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival 2022’s Critics’ Week, then at the Toronto International Film Festival last September, AFTERSUN stars Paul Mescal (Normal People), Célia Rowlson-Hall (Vox Lux) and for the first time on screen the young actress Frankie Corio.

Sophie contemplates the moments of shared joy and the intimate nostalgia of the holidays she spent with her father twenty years earlier. Memories, real and imagined, fill the gaps between the recordings with her miniDV, as she tries to reconcile the father she knew and the man she did not know.

Awarded the French Touch Prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival and the Grand Prix at the Deauville Film Festival last September, AFTERSUN is a real success of esteem with the public and critics wherever it is presented. For her first feature film, Scottish director Charlotte Wells plunges us into the heart of the 90s in Turkey, in the intimacy of a family. Paul Mescal rightly embodies a mysterious and sensitive father while the young Frankie Corio, whose first role it is, imposes herself with a disarming naturalness. Partly inspired by the life of the director, AFTERSUN takes the form of a moving testimony to the memories of a teenager’s vacation with her father.

Screening at the Festival du nouveau cinéma
