The stunning debut from Scottish writer-director Charlotte Wells, Aftersun juxtaposes a hopeful coming-of-age story with a poignant, intimate family portrait that leaves an indelible impression.

At a fading vacation resort in the late 1990s, 11-year-old Sophie (Frankie Corio) 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.

Contains sequences of flashing lights which might affect customers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.

We might not have a red carpet, but we do have some great films. We're screening a selection of this year's Academy Awards nominees for your consideration before this year's ceremony. Paul Mescal has earned a Best Actor nomination at Oscars 2023 for his performance in Aftersun.
