New trailer for festival fave ‘Aftersun’ with Paul Mescal and Francesca Corio

One of the hits from Cannes earlier this year, and various festivals since, is Charlotte Wells’ debut feature, Aftersun. The film is starting to roll into cinemas from next month, starting with the US from 21st October.

Eleven-year-old Sophie and her father, Calum, vacation at a Turkish beach resort in the late1990s. They swim, play pool, and enjoy each other’s company; they’re partners in crime. Calum is the best version of himself when he is with Sophie. Sophie feels like anything is possible when Calum is around. When Sophie is on her own, she navigates new friendships and experiences. As they enjoy their time together, layers of melancholy and mystery ripple through Calum’s behavior. Twenty years later, the memories take on new meaning as Sophie tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn’t. Written and directed by Charlotte Wells, AFTERSUN explores how we may never truly understand the complex interior lives of the ones we love.

The film will roll out to other territories soon. We’ll keep you posted on dates.

Check out the new trailer below and a striking new poster above.
